About John

I received my Bachelor's Degree from Drew University in Economics and Political Science. While at Drew, I was fortunate enough to study at the United Nations for one semester. After working for one year, I went back to school to earn my Master's Degree in Economics from SUNY Albany. However, my studies have never stopped. While working in the private sector, I earned the Certified Employee Benefits Specialist designation. I've also held securities licenses (FINRA 6, 7, 24, and 63) as well as the Life Insurance licenses. I also earned the Competent Communicator designation from Toastmasters International - an organization that helps people improve their speaking and leadership skills. I have been teaching students in a variety of settings since 2001.

Most recently, I was the Associate Dean of General studies at a local college. However, I discovered my love of teaching while I was an adjunct teacher at Quincy College. While there, I taught Economics and Finance. I've also had the pleasure substitute teaching in both the Braintree and Quincy public school systems. As you may be able to tell, I love teaching Economics! It's a subject that is always in the news and I love teaching the theory and relating it to the real world. Economics is tied closely with government - another subject that I like to discuss especially now given the Presidential election next year.

I have been teaching economics since 2002 at the community college level and most recently at ITT Technical Institute where I was the Associate Dean of General Studies. I was also a project manager since 2005 working on projects ranging from compliance issues to administration issues. For example, I helped open offices in the Philippines and Portsmouth, NH.

If students are looking for a tutor who is always willing to help and to put in the extra effort to ensure that he/she understands the material, then please contact me. I am very flexible and will work with any student to find time to meet with him/her.

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.

Business

I was an Economics major in undergrad and a received my M.A. degree in Economics as well. I have taught economics since 2002 as well. I have tutored in finance and most of my career has been with business/finance institutions. I was also a financial planner in which I spoke to people about their financial goals and objectives. At this time, I was also self-employed under the umbrella of NY Life.

Career Development

While Associate Dean of General Studies at ITT Technical Institute, I taught several classes on career development. This includes writing resumes and cover letters, and preparing for interviews. Besides how to respond to interview questions, I reviewed how to dress, provided mock interviews, and after-the-inerrview procedures (ex. thank you note, follow-up). I also discussed networking (the importance of networking and how to begin the process of networking).

Microsoft Excel

I have over 10 years experience using the software including using charts and pivot tables. I have also taught Excel.

Project Management

From 2002 - 2013 I was a project manager working on a range of topics from compliance issues (ex. privacy and AML programs) to administrative issues. I helped open offices (including developing training) in Portsmouth, NH and Manila Philippines and I ran projects ranging from a few days to months. Before my last employer (ITT Technical Institute) abruptly shut down. I was approved to teach a course on project management.

Series 63

I have taken and passed the Series 63 exam. My license has expired but I am familiar with the material. My professional experience includes working with products covered in the Series 63.

Study Skills

My experience teaching students from the elementary level to adults has allowed me to work with people one-on-one to determine the most efficient way to study and be successful. I have worked with students to organize a study plan and discuss ways the student can be most successful. Topics that I have covered are organization, prioritizing tasks, project planning (which can be used to set plans to help complete multiple assignments due at different times).
