I am currently ONLY tutoring students from WESTERN GOVERNORS UNIVERSITY'S C708 & EZC1, but thank you for reading my profile!

Intro to Corporate Finance, Intro to 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 3,000 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?

Individual attention.

Robert seemed to pay very close attention to my statements in order to tailor his instruction to my individual learning assistance needs. Composing a lesson plan, or curriculum, based on individual student needs may seem basic to some but it is a trait that cannot otherwise be taken for granted in the field of student assistance.

Curtis, 4 lessons with Robert

Patient, knowledgeable tutor

Robert has gone over every topic that is in UFC1. Finally, formulas are making sense. That class has been hell, but with all his help I am feeling more and more confident that I'll pass.

Cassandra, 23 lessons with Robert

Knowledgeable

Robert is very patient and knowledgeable in Corporate Finance. He knows how to explain complex concepts in simple terms that make the subject easy to understand.

Patrice, 6 lessons with Robert

Knows WGU coursework

Robert knows WGU finance coursework,which is a huge help. He was very personable and easy to talk to. This is my last class and I'm hopeful that Robert can help me pass quickly so I can graduate. I have scheduled another session with Robert.

Great tutor

Robert teaches me in a way that is understandable and in which I can apply it to further questions with understanding. He has a thorough understanding of the concepts. Thank you Robert!

Ashley , 5 lessons with Robert

Very Understanding

Robert did a great job leading me to understand the BA II Plus calculator. He is patient and walks you through problems. We spent the first tutoring session going over the Time Value of Money, one of the foundation concepts of this class and he made it seem easy. He introduced the BA II Plus to me and helped me work the problems using the N, I/Y, PV, PMT, FV keys which really simplified the process. I highly recommend Robert for tutoring WGU's C708.

Rodney, 6 lessons with Robert

Knowledgable and helpful tutor

Robert was able to break the TVM concepts down so quickly in a way that I could easily understand. He was able to shape his tutoring around my future career and highlight areas that will be relevant to me as an entrepreneur. I highly recommend him!

Sarah, 3 lessons with Robert

Very helpful

Robert was very professional and helpful. He listened to what I was struggling with then helped me choose what I could do. He went over actual problems with me and taught me some very nice time saving tricks on my calculator. I will definitely be using him again.

Candace, 2 lessons with Robert

Great WGU finance tutor

Robert makes it a lot easier to understand and prepare you for success. He does confuse you with unnecessary verbiage that would throw you off on a test. Robert caters to the student and their style of learning.
