I graduated from Stanford University with Distinction (top 5% of both majors), with Double Majors in Economics and Political Science. My Economics course work included Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, International Economics and Finance, Securities Analysis, and Econometrics. My Political Science major involved a heavy emphasis on both ancient and modern history and political philosophy, along with the usual curriculum relating to Political Science itself. All the courses emphasized analytical skills along with essay writing.
I followed up my interest in Economics and Securities markets by building a successful career in the investment industry, and now work for myself. I have taught test preparation for the securities licensing tests, including the Series 6, 7, 63, 65, and 66. My passion for teaching and helping students has never waned, and during the past 10 years I have taught a wide variety of subjects.
I had my first session with Guillermo yesterday and I must say this man is the best tutor I have ever had for the subject I was having trouble with. I went to him for help in a investments analysis class that I was close to simply giving up on altogether. Guillermo agreed to meet with me within moments after sending him a email. He explained the problems sets with ease and in a way that made even the most complex equations make total sense. He is extremely knowledgeable and is great at explaining how the problems really work and how they might be applied in real life. I look forward to our next session. - 1 semester later... After my first few lessons with Guillermo I immediatly noticed a huge difference in my understanding and interest in finance. The knowledge that I gained from Guillermo is priceless. I no longer stressed out over complex equations or upcoming exams and quizzes. Guillermos way of teaching is a style that not many people are smart enough to pull off. He teaches in a way that forces you to see the big picture and really grasp the concepts of the subject matter. He shows you the real life application of the subject and teaches you how to think critically through any problem set that gets thrown your way. After getting on a schedule seeing Guillermo a couple times a week i no longer needed to study long hours attempting to memorize and regurgitate the information on exams. Instead i was able to use my critical thinking skills and conceptual knowledge taught to me by Guillermo to work through any finance related problem with ease. I ended up finishing my Investment analysis course with a 95%, this was one of the top grades in the class. I truly believe that without the help of Guillermo I would not be where i am today. Not only was Guillermo the greatest tutor I have ever meant, he has also become a good friend and one i plan to stay in contact with in the years to come and for that i am truly gratefull.Ross, 9 lessons with Guillermo
G! Thanks for everything!
G helped me master the S65! I was super frustrated and had bad test anxiety after failing the S65. He was able to methodically work with me to grasp and learn the information in a way in which the books and online videos couldn’t help me with. Highly recommend G!Craig, 5 lessons with Guillermo

You Won’t Find Better!
My son has been working with Guillermo and I asked him to please write about his experience so that I could post it on Wyzant... I have been working with Guillermo in the field of Political Science, and in the simplest terms, he has been an absolute gift and a godsend. He is, without question, one of the most gifted tutors you will ever find. After just one session with Guillermo, I knew immediately that I had found someone to work with for years to come. I have worked with him on numerous very challenging college essays and other assignments, and there is no assignment he cannot tackle. His knowledge of Political Science is incredibly impressive and beyond anything I thought I would find in my search for a tutor. Beyond imparting his knowledge on various areas within Political Science, he has provided me with the ability to approach various topics in the field, both theoretical and concrete, in a deeply analytical, intellectual, and precise fashion, and has done so with patience and ease. Furthermore, he is truly the most gifted writer I have ever come across; he has helped me to enhance writing that I felt was already extremely strong into pieces of work far beyond what I thought I was capable of. Unlike many tutors I have used, Guillermo takes the time to actually teach you how to improve your writing, rather than simply writing the work for you. He has made me a far better analytical thinker and overall writer, and has instilled a confidence in me that I previously did not have. Guillermo forms connections with his students, getting to know and understand them, ultimately allowing him to tailor his teaching to the kind of person and student you are. In summation, Guillermo is one of a kind, and I cannot wait to continue learning and growing under his guidance.Ellen, 30 lessons with Guillermo
Passed Series 65!
G has been a huge help! He definitely helped me on some of the subject matter I was not grasping. After working with him for several months, I passed the exam on the first try! I’d highly recommend letting him be your tutor for help with the Series 65.Eric, 19 lessons with Guillermo
Very intelligent and helpful tutor
Guillermo N helped me a lot with macroeconomics and studying for my tests as a high school student taking the AP course. He is very patient and helpful, and even more than that he is really flexible with accommodating to when you need help. He is a great tutor that is a huge part of me seeing an improvement in my grades and overall knowledge of the material.Dennis, 4 lessons with Guillermo
Knowledgeable with great teaching skills
My first session with Guillermo was extremely productive. He was able to quickly narrow in on some of the gaps in my understanding and was able to address them very effectively. I look forward to my next class.Vinod, 13 lessons with Guillermo

Guillermo is an amazing tutor. He has so much patience and such a vast understanding of everything he teaches. I need help passing the series 65 and with Guillermo’s help I know I will be able to finally pass.Andrea , 4 lessons with Guillermo
Great Teacher!!! (Series 65)
He has a great way of teaching in such a short period of time. I was able to learn quite a bit that I thought I already knew (but didn’t) in only a 2 hour session! I can’t wait to use him for more classes and see how I do on the next test!Matt, 7 lessons with Guillermo
