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

My educational background is studying at the Wharton Business School, where I graduated within 3 years (instead of 4).

I have been in the business/financial industry for 3+ years.

Career Development

I have experience mentoring in career development for careers primarily in the Financial Industry.

Also, able to provide resume and cover letter review (for all industries) as well as mock interviews (behavioral only for non-financial industries), all of which I have 5+ years of experience providing to peers/mentors/friends/colleagues with positive results.

CFA

My educational background is in undergraduate business school at University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School. The coursework at my school prepared me for the basic foundation of knowledge necessary for the CFA examination. As such, I passed all 3 exams on my first try, using self-prepared notes and study methods.

I use Kaplan's Schweser books as a teaching tool to help students/professionals who are preparing for the exam. I have 2 years of experience in tutoring each topic in each level in a simple and easy-to-understand way. My methods prepare the student to learn the best way to study for the first exam, and each subsequent exam after that.

Chinese

I possess Native/Bilingual Proficiency as I am a Chinese-American. My education includes graduation from Chinese School at Hua Xia Chinese School as well as earning A's in the following courses at the University of Pennsylvania: Intermediate Reading & Writing, Business Chinese and Spoken Chinese.

I can tutor beginner-intermediate level Chinese (reading/writing/speaking), as well as provide services for conversational speaking.
