About Jeffrey

I recently moved to Athens Georgia to work on my doctorate in economics. I plan to pursue behavioral economics, but find interest in many economic and financial fields.

Prior to my relocation, I was employed for four years as a fiscal policy analyst for the Rhode Island House of Representatives. I attended Bentley University and pursued a dual-program undergraduate degree in Economics & Finance with a minor in Law. Upon undergraduate graduation, I enrolled in the full-time MBA program, concentration in Economics and Financial Markets. Furthermore, I possess 2 FINRA licenses, Series 7 and Series 66. While in college, I was a Resident Assistant and tutored 3 subjects: Economics, Finance, and Business Statistics.

My teaching style is relaxed but focused. I like students to fully understand the question or topic of difficulty. It is important to realize, "What is this question really asking?" Also, I like to create relatable stories to better describe problems. Rephrasing complex financial or economic theories can be helpful to increase comprehension and understanding. My tutoring is more of a teaching conversation, where I expect you to speak and show your learning. After an initial tutoring session, I have created self check tests for my students to better prepare for an upcoming exam.

I am patient and able to work on any level of finance or economics. The basics are very important as everything builds upon that foundation; however, the "hard stuff" is where all the fun happens. I truly enjoy teaching this material.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
