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 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.

SAT Math

I love tutoring! Working with a student and creating a customized learning curriculum makes every new student a challenge and opportunity. SAT math seems daunting to many students at first, particularly after the first real test. It does not have to be. Once broken down, my students understand that improving your score is a very achievable goal. As soon as a student understands that tangible results are possible, I find that they become not only willing but enthusiastic about the work required to get the score they want. A short conversation is the best way to learn about me, about my process, and see if it fits your needs.

Jamie is very Knowledgable and does a great job translating concepts clearly.

I was impressed that Jamie had a "lesson" planed for our meeting, he was interested in what my goals were and fashioned a lesson plan accordingly. He also gives homework to ensure that the student integrates the material.

Silvana, 2 lessons with Jamie

Very knowledgeable.

He is teaching me how to identify important information and how to respond to difficult questions. Lots of things to learn about. He'll get me there. There is a lot of information to understand.

Francis, 27 lessons with Jamie

excellent!!!!!

Jaime was by far the best tutor I had! He didn’t waste any of my time with random conversation or talking at me about how much he can do for me, Or anything unnecessary. He broke things down in an amazingly concise way and helped me break down the areas as that I was struggling with. Use him!!!!!! He will help you pass!

Lindsey, 5 lessons with Jamie

Someone who easily calmed my nerves

I really wanted to pass the Series 7 and I freaked out when the test date got closer. It felt like so much information in my head that I became overwhelmed. What happened with Jamie is that he explained stuff in the Series 7 in layman's terms and it stuck in my head in a sense that it didn't feel like it was overcrowded . When we went over test questions and I couldn't understand the wording of the question he was able to help me see it a certain way. This helped my confidence level knowing I could provide the best answer to each question. You may know the information in the Series 7 but the questions on the test can throw you off. Jamie understands what the Series 7 contains and he will have you understand it way quicker than you going over it again and again and again. Thank you again Jamie.

Aggie, 3 lessons with Jamie

excellent Tutor

Jamie is able to narrow down what’s important to the exam I am taking. Took the time to make sure I understand the material.

Mark, 7 lessons with Jamie

SIE exam

Jamie is very helpful and knowledgeable! He is a huge help in understanding material and explaining concepts. I was skeptical of online tutoring but the experience was great and so glad I tried it.

Susan, 3 lessons with Jamie

Clear, prepared teacher

Mr. B. explains things clearly, makes sure that I understand what we are doing before moving on and leaves me with materials I can use to further my own self-study. I could not be happier with his help.

J, 4 lessons with Jamie

Knowledgeable and patient

Jamie is super knowledgeable, any question I had he was able to zoom out and vaguely explain an overview before zooming back in and dissecting specific concepts or definitions.

Matt, 1 lesson with Jamie

Works and relates well with young people entering the securities business

My son was studying for the series 7 exam, a requirement for his new job right out of college. He was self studying after working 12 hour days--a difficult combination. I did some research online and found Jamie, contacted him and he called me right back. After that, it was really just about the two of them working together and creating their own schedule. My son told me that Jamie is very patient, really knows his stuff, is available, answers all his questions and offered many tools for him to use while actually taking the test. He passed the first part of the series 7, and will be working with Jamie to get through the second and final part of the test. I highly recommend Jamie.
