Bio

I focus on tutoring WGU C708 & EZC1; Intro to Corporate Finance, Intermediate Corporate Finance, Investments, and Financial Calculators. I help with Time Value of Money Calculations; Valuation of Stocks and Firms; CAPM; Risk/Reward; Financial Statements; Capital Structure; Capital Budgeting; and Dividend Policy.

I focus on tutoring WGU C708 & EZC1; Intro to Corporate Finance, Intermediate Corporate Finance, Investments, and Financial Calculators. I help with Time Value of Money Calculations; Valuation of Stocks and Firms; CAPM; Risk/Reward; Financial Statements; Capital Structure; Capital Budgeting; and Dividend Policy. (Sorry, I do not tutor stand-alone accounting classes, just accounting within the context of a finance class. Also, I generally do not take on students looking for last minute help with projects.)

I am a 17-year former University Lecturer--University of Illinois at Chicago, Northwestern, and DePaul--and a 13-year former bond trader. I taught a total of about 3000 students. I hold an MBA in Finance with a lot of Accounting from Booth.

Time Value of Money is central to almost all of finance. Need help with that? I can help you. Learning formulas may help you to a better grade-of course, after all, you do need to know the numbers--but the idea behind them is far more important for long-term success. Think of it this way, your finance/accounting job is not going to require you to grind out the formula for Standard Deviation, the Black-Scholes option pricing model, or Net Income on a financial statement. You will supply the inputs and the software pops out the answer. What does the answer mean? How does the answer change based on changes in the inputs? What if? Numbers on a page can be hard and cold without understanding them. How do they relate?

Financial Accounting

Financial Accounting

I am a Booth Finance and Accounting MBA. I had five Booth Accounting classes. I really enjoy tutoring the concepts of financial statements. In my Into to Corporate Finance classes I laid out different ways to look at these statements and explained how they interrelate. What do they mean? What do ratios actually tell you?

Fantastic

The session helped me clear up some issues I had been running into. Robert was very helpful and patient. He made something very complex easy to understand! Great!

Justin, 1 lesson with Robert

Full understanding of course material I am learning.

His in-depth understanding allows him to offer very valuable insights into how to look at the material and have it make sense. As well as helping me understand the need to apply a consistent methodology to my application of WACC formulation.

Paul, 1 lesson with Robert

Helpful and patient

I was struggling with Firm Valuation at the end of my Finance course at WGU. Robert was able to explain how to input the formulas into the financial calculator correctly. This was a big help for me!

Brittney, 1 lesson with Robert

knowledgeable tutor who had an easy way to explain things

knowledgeable tutor who had an easy way to explain things. He was patient and kind. I have another lesson booked with him to help me pass the course. I will refer him to others in my accounting program

Belinda, 3 lessons with Robert

Perfect

I needed help with the general use of the BA II + calculator. Robert had tons of questions already ready to go and we went over them together to practice using the calculator. When I made an error Robert knew why it was wrong and showed me a trick on how to check where I messed up.

Andrew, 1 lesson with Robert

Much further ahead than where I was an hour ago!

Robert answered my questions within the first eight minutes of our session. He was willing and prepared to spend the rest of the time on the subject material in my upcoming chapter. With his examples and the practice problems we worked through I am ready to cruise right through bond evaluations! Thank you so much!

Carol, 6 lessons with Robert

Very knowledgeable!

Robert is extremely patient and thorough! He spent extra time with me in our last lesson to be sure that I understood how to work the problems.

Rebecca, 12 lessons with Robert

Willing to listen to what you really need

I am currently a student at WGU and I am struggling to grasp the concepts in c708 principles of finance. Robert was willing to listen to what I wanted, teach me the questions, the reason behind them and the knowledge he has of the approved calculator.

Matthew, 3 lessons with Robert

This guy knows his stuff!

Robert knows this material very well. More than that, he knows finance. He was so helpful with the tips and tricks he showed me. I feel much more confident now about taking my exam. Robert is also a very fun and interesting person to learn from. I strongly recommend him.
