About Jihan

WHAT I DO:
I tutor undergrads/graduate students in finance and accounting courses. On a referral basis, I have helped many students succeed in their coursework. My goal is to help my students not only get better grades but also gain a deeper understanding of the subject.

I am also a CFA exam specialist. I have passed all three levels of CFA exam back in 2013 and start tutoring students/professionals since then. For the last three years, I have helped many of my students successfully pass Level 1 and 2 exams on their first attempt. Thanks to my five years of investment banking experience, I am able to bring real life examples to my teachings to aid students in their understanding of complicated financial concepts.

WHY ME?

Educational backgrounds:

I hold a bachelor's degree in economics from Ohio State University and a MBA degree in accounting from Fairfield University. I am a life-long learner as I am currently taking graduate level finance courses at Harvard University.

Professional backgrounds:

I have five years of professional experience in investment banking. As an associate, I worked on various projects ranging from distressed restructuring to start-up firm valuations. I excel at analyzing company financial statements, building financial models and performing due diligence.

Teaching style:

I am one of the highest quality tutors who will help you effectively understand the material or problems you are trying to solve. I focus on taking students beyond basic formulas and boring calculations that college professors simply tell them to do. Instead, I will teach them the underlying logics behind the concepts or formulas and how they relate to real world scenarios in the everyday business.

MY TUTORING EXPERIENCE

I've tutored people as a personal hobby. It's expanded more in recent years. I have tutored students from many universities:

Yale, Harvard, Duke, Cornell, Northwestern, DePaul, Fairfield, Villanova, Columbia, NYU...

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 have a master's degree in Accounting from Fairfield University. I explain accounting in a unique, easy to remember way that makes all transactions (debit/credits) and rules (GAAP/IFRS) understandable.
I have extensive tutoring experience with college/graduate students from introductory level accounting courses to advanced accounting topics such as business consolidation, mergers and acquisition. Students who I have tutored with can not only achieve higher grade in their coursework but also gain a deeper understanding of accounting.

CFA

I have a master's degree in finance from Harvard University. I have passed all three levels of CFA exam back in 2013 and start tutoring students/professionals since then. For the last three years, I have helped many of my students successfully pass Level 1 and 2 exams on their first attempt. Thanks to my five years of investment banking experience, I am able to bring real life examples to my teachings to aid students in their understanding of complicated financial concepts.

Chinese

My native language is standard Chinese (Mandarin) and I speak without any accent. I have formal education in Chinese for 12 years. I've been tutoring Chinese for over 5 years, and I'm experienced with teaching all level speakers. I love working with students of all ages and experienced levels.

Economics

I have a bachelor's degree in economics from Ohio State. I have been tutoring economics for undergrad students for several years. My expertise lies in microeconomic theory, macroeconomic theory, money and banking, and international economics/finance.
