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
Guillo is the BEST tutor. He's incredibly patient and knows how to explain complex concepts in a way that is approachable and understandable. He is great at meeting students exactly where they are with material and getting them to a point where they feel confident with it. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone getting ready for the Series 7!Lili, 3 lessons with Guillermo

Fantastic Tutor - Series 7
Guillermo helped me pass my Series 7 exam, and jumped me from a 55% to a mid 80s grade. He worked with me to develop my basic knowledge of each chapter through quizzes, practice problems, and online lessons. With Guillermo's help, I was able to confidently answer every question on my exam because we worked on test taking strategies such as eliminating answers. I would highly recommend Guillermo to anyone seeking to improve their Series 7 score as well as their knowledge of the Securities Industry. He invested his time into my studies, and encouraged me every step of the way. I truly believe without his help I would not have passed my exam.Alex, 10 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
