About Jack

I am a former Cal State Dominguez Hills adjunct faculty member who has taught corporate finance, financial institution management, accounting, cost accounting and international business courses for more than fifteen years. I know the common misconceptions held by many students. To counter these misconceptions I have developed several analogies that help students understand underlying financial principles. I use sports, sailing, history and aviation principles to reinforce my teaching. Diagrams and graphics are major reinforcement tools.

I headed my own business brokerage and private equity brokerage firm named Kepler Financial. The reasoning behind the name choice was three fold. First Kepler was a middle man. He fits between Copernicus and Galileo. Kepler Financial is a financial middleman. We introduce entrepreneurs to Private Equity Groups. Second, the language of physics and finance is mathematics. Kepler Financial is a number cruncher. Third, and most important, Kepler was the first to note that the planets are in elliptical orbits not circular orbits. Sometimes they are going faster and sometimes they are going slower. Have you noticed that the economy is sometimes going faster and sometimes going slower? Therefore you need a number cruncher middleman to guide you through both the fast times and slow times.

Why is this relevant? In the beginning of a Kepler Financial assignment I had to explain the financial realities to very intelligent but not necessarily sophisticated but streetwise entrepreneur. Explanations had to clear and straight forward. Then in the due diligence phase I had to explain the same identical situations to the highly sophisticated professional support staff such as bankers, accountants and attorneys in very technical terms. My concept is for students to first grasp the fundamental concepts like a streetwise entrepreneur, then master the more sophisticated nomenclature and relationships to prepare for academic test.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Accounting

I am a former Cal State Dominguez Hills adjunct faculty member who has taught corporate finance, financial institution management, accounting, cost accounting and international business courses for more than fifteen years. I know the common misconceptions held by many students. To counter these misconceptions I have developed several analogies that help students understand underlying financial principles.

Business

I have an MBA from a major university. I have been involved in real estate syndication and private equity for over thirty years. I have taught accounting, cost accounting, finance, international business and financial institution management for California State Dominguez Hills for fifteen years. I am adept at speaking to street wise entrepreneurs on a gut level basis and to their bankers and accountants on a technical basis.

Finance

If you are looking for a tutor for finance you must be either struggling just to pass or seek to be at the top of your class now and in the future. In either case I’m you guy.
I am a former Cal State Dominguez Hills adjunct faculty member who has taught corporate finance, financial institution management, accounting, cost accounting and international business courses for more than eighteen years. I know the common misconceptions held by many students. To counter these misconceptions I have developed several analogies that help students understand underlying financial principles. I use sports, sailing, history and aviation principles to reinforce my teaching. Diagrams and graphics are major reinforcement tools. This is for the struggling students. We can review the chapter objectives and prepare a list of expected questions on the exams.
For the students trying to excel in class and later on the job, my business experience is extremely significant.

Jack was great! He took the time to sit down and make sure I understood how to do a budget for my final. He is also cheaper than the majority of tutors.
