After many years of teaching and over 2200 hours of 5-star tutoring, I have established myself as one of Manhattan's premier private tutors. I have helped hundreds of students achieve their SHSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT and GRE goals and secure their places at schools such as Stuyvesant, Groton, Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and Columbia. I have also helped students from Columbia, NYU and globally (online) prepare for their exams in Finance, Economics, Investments, Statistics and Econometrics....
After many years of teaching and over 2200 hours of 5-star tutoring, I have established myself as one of Manhattan's premier private tutors. I have helped hundreds of students achieve their SHSAT, PSAT, SAT, ACT, GMAT and GRE goals and secure their places at schools such as Stuyvesant, Groton, Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and Columbia. I have also helped students from Columbia, NYU and globally (online) prepare for their exams in Finance, Economics, Investments, Statistics and Econometrics. Many graduates with Econ majors have hired me to teach them Finance and Investment Theory and forego the time and expense of an MBA altogether. I also help students navigate complex real estate valuation and LBO spreadsheets for both classroom related learning and real life investing.
TEST PREP: Many of my students spend enormous resources with classes, tutors and self-study only to find themselves stuck at the 600/85% level. This happens, especially for the Math section of the exams, because they have practiced and reinforced a brute-force approach which takes too many steps, too much time and forces careless mistakes. I teach my students how to think efficiently and find the elegant solutions. Instead of spending 4 minutes on a problem and getting it wrong, imagine doing it in 30 seconds and getting it right! That's how you get to 780. Many of my students wish they had contacted me first instead of going with a cheaper option. In the end, I may seem expensive but I am actually cost effective because I get results.
I have three Ivy League degrees, and I am a retired finance professor and a 20-year Wall Street hedge fund manager. I have taught finance, economics, investments and business at the collegiate and graduate level. I love to teach. I won the teaching award while at Columbia Business School. I bring both advanced teaching skills and real world career experience to motivate the learning process. I know how to explain complex concepts in an easy to understand manner. I am easy to relate to and develop a long-term mentoring relationship with my students.
I struggled in high school. I know what that's like. Then, my parents hired a tutor, a PhD in Philosophy and Mathematics, and my life changed forever. My tutor taught me how to think clearly, efficiently and precisely. Most importantly, my tutor made learning FUN and EXCITING! I aced the SAT and later the LSAT. I scored 99.99+% on the GMAT. It was the top score in the country that year. I received numerous scholarships for my education. I won Harvard Law School's Litigation Competition and served as a prosecutor in Massachusetts. I won the Columbia Business School teaching award and became a professor of finance. I then had a successful career on Wall Street.
Now, I give back by doing what I truly love to do- help my students succeed. I have students of all ages. I home-schooled my own kids K-12 and got them into Harvard College early action. Invest in your or your child's education. It's worth every penny many times over. The benefits of a great tutor or mentor last a lifetime and are priceless.
I try to be flexible with time and often provide extra over time without charge. I do not charge a cancellation fee. I understand that life sometimes requires lessons to be rescheduled.
I meet my NYC students in their homes and my online students sometimes as late as 2 am or as early as 6 am depending on their time zones. I am selective and do not take just any student. If I choose to work with a motivated student, I will develop a mentoring relationship and often help with application strategies, interview training, and career advice after they graduate.
I am expensive but worth it. I am also flexible and sensitive to a budget. I have a two hour minimum but after that I will often give extra time for free. If you're excited about achieving your goals then contact me and leave me your number and we'll do a free call to get to know one another and explore how I might help you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Search no further! Brilliant, gifted and passionate tutor.
Search no further for a brilliant, gifted, passionate, and inspiring tutor! My son looked forward to sessions with Dr P. to help prepare for his business school final exams. Dr Park is extremely knowledgeable about all topics relating to business and mathematics. He is on another level of any tutor you will find and does it for the joy of it. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have met him.Shelby, 5 lessons with Jd
Gifted and passionate teacher
JD brought unmatched passion and energy to the tutoring session. His in-depth knowledge of the subject matter and his years of teaching experience show in his adeptness at explaining concepts in ways they can be easily understood and remembered. He moved efficiently through the session, explaining concepts, and then working through problems to confirm understanding before moving on. His enthusiasm was contagious...he makes learning fun!Kitt, 3 lessons with Jd
Innovative and thorough
JD tutors my daughter for the math section of the SAT. His approach to teaching is broad and conceptual, drawing on innate logic. The result is not only superior preparation for the exam, but an augmented ability to think more lucidly in any discipline.Gianna, 4 lessons with Jd
He is very knowledgeable and explains very well. He has great material for practice. I learned so much during our two-hour session. I am going to take more sessions with him and I highly recommend him.Elham, 1 lesson with Jd
Really smart and prepared
I am taking an extremely challenging course at NYU called Real Estate Capital Markets mainly about CMBS. I have been struggling to follow along the entire semester although I have done all the readings so far. Dr. P. was able to help me and was prepared for the lesson although I sent him all the material last minute the night before. He is very knowledgeable and applies real life concepts to the material making it easier to understand. I am looking forward to our next sessions. I would recommend Dr. P. 100 percent!Gabriela, 8 lessons with Jd
Professional and effective
My tutoring session was two hours long and we covered a lot because JD knows how to convey ideas concisely and effectively. Once he sees that you understand a concept, he wastes no time jumping into the next; my brain was fried by the end.Mio, 2 lessons with Jd
The man is incredible. His real name should be " Watson "
TVM,PV vs. FV,algerbraic equations. Made me privy to what I'm about to walk into at Columbia Bussiness School. Clear & precise understanding of a financial calculator to which I've never used. Always did everything in my head. Only downside was the venue. Very loud. only because the first choice was closed.John , 1 lesson with Jd

Unparalleled Tutor, Teacher, Mentor!
Providing a short review of Dr. Park is difficult because he has so many outstanding qualities include here! First, let me just say he is hands down the best tutor you will ever find! Period. His theoretical and practical knowledge of all aspects of finance, investing, economics and more is of the highest level. In addition, he brings years of teaching and tutoring experience to the table which was evident from our very first session. His ability to understand and tailor his teaching style to my particular learning approach and learning difficulties has been tremendously helpful and something I never got from my teachers in school. He really strives to help me to not simply memorize my way through material but to develop a rigorous mental platform to be able to understand key concepts and formulas both at the conceptual and applied level. He is also extremely warm, friendly, and supportive. I always look forward to our sessions and plan to continue to work with him for the foreseeable future.Daniel, 41 lessons with Jd
Dr JD was clear, to the point, super patient and understanding and most of all-he knew all the material backwards and forwards. He is one of the best tutors that I have ever had.Aaron, 1 lesson with Jd
