About Jd


Bio

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....

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!

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

Helped me a lot with my financial strategy work!

Helped me with my homework and explained it well to me! Was patient and took time to explain what each step was

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.

Awesome tutor

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

Knowledgable and patient tutor.

JD was able to quickly understand my learning style and apply ways to improve my deductive reasoning skills to ensure that I was prepared for my exam. During my sessions I have developed good math habits that I have been able to apply to my studies. I highly recommend JD as an experienced and knowledgeable tutor.

Ahmed, 3 lessons with Jd

Saved my academic semester

Dr. P. saved my academic semester. I was having trouble understanding the material of my International Finance class and contacted him. He answered me within 15 minutes and was very polite. In the session he was very patient and really well prepared. It's expensive but DEFINITELY worth it. I feel much more confident to go through my Econ classes now that I've found him.

Extremely helpful and very smart

He was very helpful and had a great plan on how to teach me the fundamentals and tricks that will help me greatly on the test. Very glad I am learning from him.

Todd, 16 lessons with Jd

Highly recommended!

I have no prior academic background or experience in fiance or accounting before starting my part-time Master of Corporate Finance online. I also have a full time job. I struggled in every semester and thought of quitting constantly. I am stressed all the time and it has affected my health. Before the class, i had no clues about how to fill in the spreadsheet for my valuation project. I am also not familiar with Excel. Dr Park patiently guided me through even though i am bit slow. He sit with me for nearly 5 hours in one go! He is very clear and logical. I have no problem communicating with him even though we had the whole class on skype. Now i am confident that i will be able to finish my master degree and graduate on time with his help! Highly recommended!
