WHAT I DO:

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 executive
