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
Knowledgable and succinct
Great series 65 teacher! I’m only one class in and I can tell he is more helpful than the books I have been reading. I’m excited to continue working with him!Cole, 2 lessons with Guillermo
Guillermo was a great tutor and took the time to walk me through options in preparation for my Series 7. He uses logic instead of memorization and I found it very helpful to do one on one tutoring.Angelina, 1 lesson with Guillermo

Series 7 Lesson
Went over options and Guillermo knows his stuff and explains the subject very well. He is a very patient guy who definitely wants to help and loves teaching. He is also very easy to communicate with and responds quickly. If your looking for a S7 tutor, definitely give Guillermo a try.Chris, 5 lessons with Guillermo
Very good at breaking down concepts and questions so you don't just understand the right answer to the question, but you understand why it is correct and how to get there.Kristen, 4 lessons with Guillermo
Great Tutor for the Series 65 (and I'm sure other exams too)
Guillermo is an excellent tutor. He helps to explain hard to grasp concepts in a very clear way. He helped me tremendously with a number of topics. He is patient, encouraging and supportive and motivated to really help you to understand the material. I highly recommend Guillermo.Alan, 3 lessons with Guillermo
Highly recommend - Great Tutor!!
Guillermo helped me pass the Series 66. He was extremely helpful and dedicated a lot of time to make sure I mastered the areas of the exam I was struggling with. I felt extremely confident going into the exam and would not have done as well if it wasn’t for his help. Overall he was a great tutor, I would recommend to anyone who’s looking to pass the Series 65/66!Meghan, 12 lessons with Guillermo
Guillermo is the man.
If you learn like I do, then you require rigid structure and a coach who is going to build a schedule and hold you accountable to it. G is just that type of tutor. He’s got 30+ years in various levels of finance and is a straight shooter. He also has great insight on HOW to study for the Series 65, employing a game plan with a proven track record of success with his students. I’m glad I hired him and continue to look forward to our sessions.Caleb, 9 lessons with Guillermo
