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

Amazing Tutor for Series 66
Guillermo was incredibly helpful. I reached out to him after failing my Series 66 on the first attempt. He kept me on a manageable study plan, helped me identify areas that I needed to focus on, and gave it to me straight when he felt I was slacking. Guillermo utilizes the tutor time to discuss topics that are more complex and difficult. He leaves the much simpler, memorization type topics for you to go through outside of the tutor session, but makes sure to test your progress the next time you meet. Overall, Guillermo is an extremely kind, knowledgeable, and enjoyable tutor to work with. He kept me motivated when I felt burnt out and instilled confidence in me to do well. I walked into the exam fully prepared and had no doubt in my mind that I passed before I hit the submit button at the end of my test. I’m positive Guillermo will do the same for anyone else that gives him the chance.Fred, 5 lessons with Guillermo

Knowledgeable, Patient and cares about his students!
Guillermo helped me pass my series 7 Top Off exam! I had taken the exam twice before and failed. Guillermo helped me to break down topics and taught me how to think logically through the questions. He was extremely helpful making complex concepts like seem options simple. He really wants his students to do well and is willing to work with you as much as you like. He is super positive. I would definitely work with him again. He is great!Kymberlee, 6 lessons with Guillermo
I booked a lesson with Guillermo because I wanted to review for an upcoming macroeconomics midterm. He was able to concisely emphasize and explain key points that my professor hadn't explained in depth. I would highly recommend him as a tutor for anyone who needs help with economics.Michelle, 3 lessons with Guillermo
Series 65 for the old man!
This dude is great. Extremely knowledgable and patient. Makes thing crystal clear. I'm 60 and rusty yet love the business however I must get my 65. I looked forward to a few more sessions to get my confidence where it needs to be. I've taken 3 Kaplan courses and after working with Guillermo I felt the courses were a waste of time and money. So lucky I found pick him. ScottScott, 4 lessons with Guillermo
Guillermo is personable, intelligent and a great teacher!
In the several sessions I had with Guillermo prior to my Macroeconomics exam, I learned more and understood more about economics than I had the rest of the semester. He made each tutoring session interesting and interactive. I never found myself getting bored or wishing I could do something else. I became genuinely interested in the topic that we were discussing. Also, one thing I loved about the tutoring sessions was how Guillermo made sure I could teach him the material before moving forward. This helped me gain a deeper understanding of the content. Guillermo is personable, intelligent, a great teacher and deserves the highest rating possible. I would most definitely love to learn from Guillermo in the future.Jeff, 8 lessons with Guillermo
