About Robert

I focus on tutoring: WGU C708; Intro to Corporate Finance, Intermediate Corporate Finance, Investments, and Financial Calculators. I help with Time Value of Money Calculations; Valuation of Companies, Stock, and Options/Futures; CAPM; Risk/Reward; Financial Statements; Capital Structure; Capital Budgeting; and Dividend Policy. I taught both undergrad and grad classes. Both student and adults.

I am a 17-year former University Lecturer--UI at Chicago, Northwestern, and DePaul--and a 13-year former bond trader. I taught a total of about 3000 students. I have 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, you 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?

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

With my university finance teaching background and my right brain art studies and activities, I love the challenge of giving you a different way to look at math, including Algebra 1.

Algebra 2

Needless to say, finance in the modern age is necessarily mathematical, including Algebra 2.

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?
