I'm a native English speaker with over 15 years of experience in accounting and finance. Professionally, I have worked in the areas of project finance, corporate finance, and securitizations. Financial transaction sizes have ranged from several million to several billion dollars. In the past few years, I have been working with entrepreneurs to help them secure funding for their startups.

I began my career in investment banking on Wall Street in New York. Without any prior experience whatsoever in either accounting or finance, I initially struggled with accounting, finance, and financial modeling when I first started working. About a year later, I had my "ah-ha!" moment and then thought, "You know, this stuff is not that difficult. Why do they teach it in a way that's so hard to learn?"

I teach people finance, accounting, and Excel financial modeling that is more intuitive and use everyday examples that anyone can relate to. I love helping people get to their "ah-ha!" moment, because I remember how it felt for me.

I was a teaching assistant for graduate level accounting and financing courses, for both the full-time and executive programs, at Columbia University where I earned my Master's degree; I received very positive feedback from students for breaking down accounting and finance concepts in a way that is easy for non-quantitative people to understand. I am currently a finance instructor at UC Berkeley Extension.

I will review your questions and materials (if any) prior to each session, so that you will get the most out of each tutoring hour. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

** Due to my limited availability at this time, I am currently only tutoring online and people who are looking to develop/improve their financial modeling skills (or need to brush up their accounting and/or finance knowledge in order to perform financial analyses.) **

Knowledgeable and well Planned Tutoring Approach

Irene first wants wants to understand your background and interest to ensure she is the right tutor for you. She than takes into consideration your background, education, experience to craft a learning program to meet your needs. She was detailed, patient and very genuine as to questions and challenge areas. Highly recommend her for consideration in financial modeling and general finance.

Great lessons and very clear!

Great lesson with Irene reviewing the basics of financial statements. She uses real world experiences and provides great context alongside the basics. I found the lesson plans to be well structured and easy to understand in a short period of time.

The best finance teacher

I just had the first lesson with Irene and I really enjoyed the lesson with her. She is quite different from other teachers that I met so far. She explained the rationale behind concepts and very clear on what is covered / not covered. I am so lucky to meet her!!

First session - orientation, goals & expectations setting

My first session with Irene went very well. I presented to her my objectives & the kind of tutoring help that I would. She assured me that she will be able to help me, and shared he approach for doing so. Irene also struck me as being a very kind & supportive person.
