About JD

I have three Ivy League degrees, and I am a retired finance professor and Wall Street hedge fund manager. I have taught finance, economics, investments and business at the collegiate level. I bring both advanced teaching skills and real world career experience to motivate the learning process. 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 an SAT tutor and my life changed. My tutor taught me 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 students succeed. I have students of all ages. I home-schooled my own kids from elementary school through high school 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 specialize in tutoring the SAT, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, as well as the TOEFL and general excellence in math, writing and English. Also, I tutor and mentor students in economics, finance, business and law. If you need help understanding financial statements or putting together a real business plan, I'm your guy.

I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring.

I try to be flexible with time and often provide extra over time without charge. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup classes.

I tutor students in my home-office near Columbia University. I am selective and do not take just any student. If I do choose to work with a motivated student I am happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient.

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 willing to do the work, so am I. So, contact me to discuss how I can help you.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!
