Bio

I’m Jim. I graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Russian with a minor in German. After several years of work, I applied was accepted to both a doctoral program (comparative literature) and business school so I’ve successfully taken both the GRE and the GMAT. I opted for business school (Top 25) and received my MBA with concentrations in Corporate Finance and Accounting. I feel too many liberal arts undergraduates talk themselves out of business school. The hard part is getting in. I can help...

I’m Jim. I graduated magna cum laude with a BA in Russian with a minor in German. After several years of work, I applied was accepted to both a doctoral program (comparative literature) and business school so I’ve successfully taken both the GRE and the GMAT. I opted for business school (Top 25) and received my MBA with concentrations in Corporate Finance and Accounting. I feel too many liberal arts undergraduates talk themselves out of business school. The hard part is getting in. I can help with that.

Tutoring and teaching – a personal core value – has been a running theme throughout my academic and professional careers. I have tutored Russian privately and in small group settings. Most recently (Feb/Mar 2022), I led a series of classes for 8 middle-school students preparing for the National Latin Examinations. All the students achieved Silver or Gold Medals. As a bank examiner for the Federal Reserve System, I was an instructor for several courses in the Fed’s internal, 3-year examiner training program, co-teaching 3-5 courses per year, with 8-15 learners per course. For two employers, I created the course curriculum and training materials and led or co-led multi-course training programs that utilized pre-course work, prerecorded lectures, and online and/or in-person classroom training. Over some 5 years, I trained more than 400 employees.

I have always loved mathematics, particularly statistics. I started with high school algebra in middle school and finished with calculus in senior year. Though I majored in languages in college, I returned to the numbers in business school, with dual concentrations in Finance and Accounting. In fact, my two favorite and most challenging courses in B-school were advanced-math-intense portfolio management (so many multivariate regressions) and options pricing. For the last four years, my career has been concentrated on the designing and executing statistical tests of computer models to assess the effectiveness and accuracy of their design and functionality.
