Ivy League Tutor for SAT, ACT, Finance, 8-12 Math, Series 7 & 66

I have tutored dozens of students in SAT math, ACT math, Economics and high school math with excellent results. Additionally, I have also helped candidates working on their GMAT, MBA in Finance, Series 7, and Series 66 exams. One on One tutoring has always proven to be the most effective teaching method. I believe that everyone has the capability to learn. The secret sauce is the right approach and it takes a sensitive teacher to find the correct recipe that works. The proper approach depends on your goals. If you are good and want to get better, that requires one technique. If you are intimidated by Math and you have always struggled, that requires a different method. Everyone is teachable one on one when motivated. As a tutor it is very rewarding to be sitting next to a student at the exact moment they "GET IT" and then go on to do well on their test.
I work from a baseline of diagnostic test results and design instructions that will address deficiencies. A course of study to achieve a goal is usually the best approach but I can work under deadlines as well. Flexible scheduling can include evenings, nights, and weekends.
I will travel to your house or a library. I do recommend a minimum of 1 - 1 1/2 hours per session since I find that to be the most effective in producing concrete results.
My qualifications include graduating high school in the top 1% of my class, Cornell University with a BS in Operations Research, Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society), and an MBA in finance from Cornell University. I am able to relate to my students very well having already tutored many with results that speak for themselves. I have 3 children with the youngest in College. I live in Northern New Jersey and I teach Financial Literacy to High School Freshman as part of my day job.
Jamie's expertise is nothing short of magic! Hyperbole aside, Jamie provided efficient and effective teaching, which paved the way toward successful completion of my finance course. Jamie has my highest recommendation and would definitely seek his help again should the need arise in the future!Ron, 3 lessons with Jamie
Knowledgeable and Outstanding -5 Stars!!!
Jamie was vital to my success on the S66 test. He has a great ability to simplify topics and condense complex subject matter into bite size pieces. He's an excellent communicator, a consummate professional -- and he's a very 'real' guy-- he's easy to talk too. If you are "stuck" or worried about a topic for an upcoming test, I would recommend Jamie without reservation. Thanks, Coach!!Jeff, 1 lesson with Jamie
5 Star Tutor
Jamie B. made such an impact on my study regimen. He taught me how to study smarter. He taught me how to study with more focus. Jamie gave me a level of accountability I did not have before. Working with Jamie is the reason I finally passed my 65 exam. He did more for me than just tutor me five times. He kept me accountable in-between lessons and didn’t let me put slack in the rope. No way I would have passed that exam without him!!!Rebecca, 5 lessons with Jamie
Knowledgeable tutor and coach
Jamie is an excellent tutor for the Series 7 examination. He quickly assessed my S7 ability and immediately helped with my weaknesses, while maintaining consistency and focus on my strengths. He continues to guide me to the path of success.George, 3 lessons with Jamie
Passed the 7 because of Jamie
I passed my series 7 (on the first go) only because of Jamie. Don't get it wrong, you'll have to do your part (hard work) but Jamie stops you from spinning your wheels and sets you on the path towards passing. Honestly I didn't believe I would be able to do it, I hadn't taken an exam in ten years, but every week working with Jamie I felt more and more secure. Jamie is calming and through- once he gets to know your leaning style he breaks down the lesson, tailoring it to you. Throw any question at him, as many times as needed, and it is answered patiently. Think Margin and Options are Hell? So did I until Jamie explained them in a way I could wrap my head around. He's taught so many students that he now has his own way of explaining the tricky parts. I spent a month studying alone and tried out two other tutors before finding Jamie- if I could do it all over again I would have begun with Jamie from the onset. I recommended him to my firm and am now recommending him to you. Good Luck!Catherine, 28 lessons with Jamie
Greatest Tutor Ever!
I fell upon Jamie in series 65 distress, lost in information to which I was not retaining. As Jamie puts it, "I hit a road block." I won't disclose Jamie's techniques, but I will say trust him. Jamie will build your confidence, he will hone in on where you are failing and expose it. Then teach you "magical" techniques to understand and retain the information. Jamie loves his statistics when it comes to how students learn, and he will help. Do what he says and the stressful series exams will even start to seem...easy. Are you hopeless? Have you worked with other tutors without success? Do you want to pass your exam? Work with Jamie and he will teach you specifics and generalities priceless to studying complex information and you will perform. Thank you, Jamie.Brandon, 3 lessons with Jamie
Jamie helped me with Variable Annuities and Margin accounts for the Series 7. He also went through the questions with me together for a better understanding and the reason behind the answers.Jenifer, 1 lesson with Jamie
Provided structure and support.
Today was our first session but Jamie obviously knew the material well and was patient with me. He provided structure with an assignment and I'm feeling positive that I can do this.Adrienne, 1 lesson with Jamie
I came to Jamie with a rather large request when it came to the series 7. I only had two and a half weeks. Jamie said it would be a very hard task but not impossible. He worked with me on areas he knew were crucial for the exam and helped guide me on what/how to study outside of our sessions. His knowledge of the exam helped me be successful on the first try.Alexa, 4 lessons with Jamie
Jamie just started to work with my daughter for the math portion of the ACT. He clearly knows about the ACT and SAT testing and was working with my daughter to help her think thru the test,referencing every day examples, so that it made more sense for her . She felt very optimistic after meeting with Jamie. He was also patient and was able to teach her at her level . Would highly reccomend Jamie .Nancy, 1 lesson with Jamie
