About Jason

I mostly tutor undergraduates, working professionals and graduate students in various business courses - primarily finance, statistics, accounting and financial modeling, but also linear optimization, management science, strategic management (including Glo-Bus) and sometimes microeconomics. Additionally, I also tutor some courses from MS in Finance and Applied Economics programs, such as econometrics, intermediate financial theory, cost-benefit analysis, financial economics, etc. Last, I help students prepare for the CFA Level I and Financial Risk Manager exams, as well as the math portion of the GMAT.

I do financial and mathematical modeling in excel for my consulting job, including the use of data analysis, solver, Decision Tool Suite (@RISK) and Crystal Ball. As needed, I proctor exams for students when they have difficulty finding an appropriate location or facility to take exams at. I have a BS in Aerospace Engineering, an MBA in Finance and a Master's in Public Policy.

I have a very flexible schedule. I have availability on most days, including Saturday and Sunday afternoons. I travel and, if you're far, I'll meet you half way, so I don't expect you to come to me.

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.

Accounting

I tutor in fundamental financial accounting, covering its principles and concepts, and including financial statement development and analysis. I also tutor managerial accounting.

Business

My experience is two-fold. First, I have an MBA in Finance from the Robert H. Smith School of Business, as well as a masters in public policy. This allows me to help students with both the fundamental business courses, in addition to the policy, normative and regulatory impacts on business. Second, I have my own business, so I am proficient at creating business plans, pro forma financial statements, market research and the little headaches that accompany starting and running a business.

CFA

I work as management consultant for utilities, conducting financial analyses and building financial models, as well as strategic planning and benchmarking. I passed the CFA Level I exam on the first attempt. In the meantime, I tutor financial accounting, managerial accounting, statistics and corporate finance through WyzAnt, all of which are complementary to studying for the CFA.

Finance

I help students with corporate finance, investments, fixed income, derivatives, and valuation using Excel, @RISK and Crystal Ball.

General Computer

While my background is in management consulting, one of my other duties as assigned was in building or enhancing PCs for my office. I trained project managers on new software and, in some cases, older software that they never really used. I'm comfortable teaching people how to use computers from a blank slate and have the requisite patience required to teach people new skills, as well as cater the approach to their learning strengths, whether they are visual or step-by-step learners.

Microsoft Excel

I help a lot of finance students with Excel, financial formulas, valuation models, Monte Carlo analysis and portfolio optimization. I also help management science and operations students with simulation and optimization models using the Solver add-in. I am also familiar with the use of Crystal Ball and @RISK.

Probability

I tutor basic probability at the undergraduate level and for MBA programs, covering everything from frequency to combinatorics.

Statistics

I offer tutoring in business and intermediate statistics, using excel, StatTools, Stata and SPSS.
