About Ephraim

I am an experienced instructor and tutor. I have taught at high school, university and Fortune 500 companies. I hold a BS degree in Engineering from Columbia University, School of Engineering and Applied Science and an M.B.A. in Finance from New York University Stern School of Business. I scored a 760/800 on my Math SAT.

At Columbia University I took advanced courses in calculus and physics. I teach advanced mathematics, physics and finance on a regular basis. Subjects taught include calculus, including AP Calculus AB, BC, precalculus, algebra, geometry and trigonometry, AP Physics 1 and AP Physics 2, mechanics, electricity and magnetism, waves, circular motion and gravitation etc.. I prepare students for math team competitions. I also specialize in test preparation for the SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT exams.

I also tutor finance to MBA and undergraduate students. Subjects taught in finance include financial mathematics, financial products such as options, futures, other financial derivatives and fixed income securities, financial management, capital budgeting and economics. I can help define a plan on MBA finance projects.

I enjoy teaching. I like to teach my students how to think about mathematics and physics and how to think about solving problems. I am able to quickly identify gaps in knowledge and teach accordingly. I provide an intuitive understanding of the subject supplemented with analytical and quantitative work. I try hard to motivate them to practice and I give them advice that is long-lasting and which will help them succeed and score higher.

I have worked for top banks including Bankers Trust (now Deutsche bank), Citigroup and Chemical Bank (now JP Morgan), where I programmed and developed complex financial applications. I also developed software for a major convertible bond hedge funds.

Some courses taken at Columbia University School of Engineering include Advanced Calculus I,IIB, IIIB, IVB, Ordinary Differential Equations, Applied Mathematics, Physics - Mechanics, Physics- Electricity and Magnetism, Physics Optics and Thermodynamics, Structural Analysis I and II, Elements of Structural Design, Structural Theory and Design, Reinforced Concrete Theory, Mechanics of Solids I and II, Fluid Mechanics I and II, Hydraulic Engineering, Soil Mechanics and Foundations I and II, Bridge Design. General Chemistry I and II, Principles of Economics I and II.

I enjoy playing chess.
