My Economics course work included Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, International Economics and Finance, Securities Analysis, and Econometrics.

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
Series 7. Better than expected.
Despite certain logistical complications (on my end) we had a most positive and informative 2 hour session. Guillermo is patient which is greatly appreciated. I have a much better understanding of debt securities. I will definitely continue with Guillermo and highly recommend his services.Kara, 3 lessons with Guillermo
Guilhermo has helped Caio restore his confidence by showing him that he has good math skills and just need to be more careful with details. We'll surely use Guilhermo's knowledge again in the future.Juliana, 2 lessons with Guillermo
Guillermo is knowledgeable , and very helpful. He made complicated concepts like options easy to understand. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve their series 7 score.Scott, 1 lesson with Guillermo
Knowledgeable and Patient
Highly recommend Guillermo. I had an overall understanding of Options for the Series 7 exam but he was able to break it down even more and get me an overall big picture view along with some great tactics to use for the test. I learned more about Options from him in one day then I had learned in a month of studying on my own. Great tutor!Michael, 1 lesson with Guillermo
Social, but very helpful, overall just a good guy
Guillermo helped me understand many graphs that I have been struggling on. Also helpful with tricky multiple choice questions. Nice guy to talk with for two hours and I left the session with a firm understanding of what we covered.Dylan , 4 lessons with Guillermo
great teacher, very patient
Guillermo was a pleasure to work with I am someone coming from a completely different field and needed to learn the basics of finance from the ground up. The series 7 books are made for people who already have a fundamental understanding so I had to try and teach myself before I could even begin to learn the materials needed for the 7. Just having Guillermo put pen to paper and help me lay the ground work of options in 2 hours was more then I was able to comprehend trying to teach it to myself in a month. His teaching style is as if you were being taught by a friend or family member he makes you feel very comfortable through the process but will also give it to you straight every time. Lastly I am someone who has struggled with attention deficit disorder my whole life and for those 2 hours he kept me totally engaged and I couldn’t thank him enough for that 5 stars+ for GuillermoMatt, 4 lessons with Guillermo
Rollins College student's dad
Guillermo has FAR exceeded my expectation with my daughter and is doing an excellent job with her. I can't say enough. He is more than a tutor, he is managing her exams and papers in a way that makes so easy for her, really very happy and cant imagine where we'd be without himWilliam, 15 lessons with Guillermo
Real educator and patient
Guillermo's goal is for his students to understand the basics and the concepts in order to be able to apply them to the material. He took his time to explain to me basic things. He is super patient. Gave me some great tips. A few people had already recommended him, my only regret is not had tutored with him earlier.Tania, 3 lessons with Guillermo
Exceptional SAT Prep Tutor
Over the past two lessons that I had with Guillermo, he has already demonstrated his proficiency in SAT prep, helping me understand how to approach the test and thoroughly break down the tougher problems into something much easier for me to comprehend. Already I feel that I am improving and I am confident that Guillermo will be able to help me improve my SAT score substantially.Joseph, 8 lessons with Guillermo
