WHAT I DO:

I tutor MBA/undergrads, corporate executives, and CFA candidates. I cover finance, accounting, the CFA exam material, statistics, excel modeling, and other related areas. I have also covered FAR material on the CPA. On a referral basis, I have worked with individuals as far away as Europe (Turkey, Germany, etc.) and Asia (India, Australia, etc.).

WHY YOU SHOULD CONTACT ME:

I'm probably the best accounting/finance tutor in Chicago. I am not the cheapest option, but I am typically one of the highest quality options that will help you effectively understand the material or problem you are trying to solve. I have been frequently referred to by former students as better than the average professor at Northwestern, DePaul, NYU, etc.,

I have a very strong mix of real world and academic experience experience. I specifically focus on taking people beyond basic formulas or academic example in textbook exercises to understanding contextually why certain analysis matter in the real world and how they relate to actual scenarios in the global economy / financial markets.

MY EDUCATION BACKGROUND:

I've an MS in accounting and a BS in finance from Tulane University. I am a CFA Charterholder. I passed every exam on the first attempt. I have extensive experience in modeling and statistical analysis in R, Python and Excel. My math aptitude includes Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Equations.

MY WORK EXPERIENCE BACKGROUND:

I have eight years working experience at multiple investment partnerships (hedge fund and venture capital). I was a generalist/special situations analyst and venture capitalist primarily focused on the technology sector.

In private/venture capital, I have boardroom experience and worked on situations ranging from distressed restructurings to start-ups with nothing more than IP and a powerpoint slidedeck. Firms I’ve invested in and worked with have been sold to Oracle, Intel, as well as taken public (IPO). I've funded companies with well known C-level executives.

In public company/hedge fund work, I've worked on various accounting frauds/restatements, special situations (spin-offs, etc.) and other equity generalist situations. I am more of an equity person than a debt person. However, I have done a bit of distressed debt work.

MY TUTORING EXPERIENCE:

I've tutored people off and on as a personal hobby. It’s expanded more in recent years, largely through referrals. I have tutored people from many organizations including:

Wharton, Duke, Creighton, Notre Dame, Northwestern, DePaul, New York University, Columbia, Stanford, Univ of Wisconsin, and Univ of Chicago (Booth). I have worked with executives from major companies such as Chicago Mercantile Exchange, UBS, JPMorgan Chase, Medtronic, Takeda, Northern Trust, a couple hedge funds, and other well known institutions.

PLEASE NOTE:

- Consulting work is separate from tutoring/teaching.

- If you contact me – PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS POSSIBLE: Tell me what you are trying to accomplish and any other pertinent data (materials, topics, etc.).

Super bright and helpful.

Cliff's expertise and skill allowed us to cover a lot of material in a short time. He was quickly able to cut through my excel homeworks and determine how my professor might approach the topics on an exam. He works hard to make sure you have a strong understanding of the concepts, and seems patient. Looking forward to working with him in the future.

Knowledgeable and professional tutor

I needed help learning about some of Excel's features and Cliff was very helpful. I had three sessions with him over several days for a kind of crash course. When questions came up that he wasn't sure of he took the time to research them and got back to me with solid answers. He was very professional and helpful. I definitely recommend him.
