About Javier

** My rates are flexible and depend on, but are not completely limited to, travel, subjects and hours taught. I am available for Skype and sessions through WyzAnt's online platform.

My name is Javier. I come from Quito, Ecuador. I also came up through the American education system starting in elementary school. I graduated with high marks from my ESL/ESOL language program while completing my elementary studies in the United States, so I may assist individuals looking to better their English language skills. I command native fluency of the English language.

I graduated from Georgetown University , where I majored in Finance. I worked at two major investment banks on Wall Street, an energy private equity shop, a Fortune 100 Corporation, and a hedge fund. During my academic studies, I lived in China and studied Mandarin to a full professional capacity. I may assist individuals seeking further understanding of the Chinese and Spanish languages as well as their corresponding cultures and customs. I scored an 800 in the SAT Spanish subject test.

I provide well thought-out guidance for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Program. In particular, I know the HP-12C calculator in and out. Using an HP-12C calculator in the CFA exam provides test takers with precious time, as the calculator uses Reverse Polish Notation (RPN). With my tutelage, potential test takers may gain intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the calculator and ultimately procure valuable time. While I place great emphasis on the calculator, I may also teach the subjects covered in the exam with much ease. Above all, I guarantee a pleasant and valuable experience when it comes to assisting my CFA clients.

I previously tutored 18 students on standardized testing. My students increased their SAT composite score by an average of 250 points. I love imparting knowledge and fully invest myself in the success of my pupils. Education is more than just a test score.

My skill set ranges from a deep understanding of both advanced Finance and Accounting, mastery in Microsoft Excel, and native fluency in Spanish. I did, also, however make it to Georgetown. I may help parents and students alike navigate the college application process.

My philosophy thrives through patience and a wide and deep understanding of a plethora of subjects. Rather than simply working hard, I encourage my students work smart. Learning styles differ immensely across all individuals.

Finally, If I cannot guarantee my work, I don't accept the job.

Very knowledgeable, patient and to the point. — Javier can break down complex concepts into manageable simple pieces. This makes for a more thorough understanding of the concepts at hand and gives you confidence, rather than just showing you what buttons to push. He is also very proficient with the HP12c calculator. I would highly recommend Javier. ...
