About Scott


Bio

Through my own parenting (3 children), as well as teaching, I have realized that each student has his or her own learning style. To be a successful educator, one must understand that no student has the same learning curve. A student needs to be praised and encouraged. I believe a teacher must find that spark or interest in each student"s strengths, and make it fun and all encompassing. All students deserve an equal chance to achieve.

Through my own parenting (3 children), as well as teaching, I have realized that each student has his or her own learning style. To be a successful educator, one must understand that no student has the same learning curve. A student needs to be praised and encouraged. I believe a teacher must find that spark or interest in each student"s strengths, and make it fun and all encompassing. All students deserve an equal chance to achieve. I have grown over the years to have patience, humility, and gratitude. Above all, I believe that confidence and respect to and from a student is paramount. I have a comprehensive background in mathematics from early elementary up to quantitative calculus. Economics and Business are subjects I have always excelled in, for I was a bond trader for over 20 years on Wall Street. American and World History are two areas that I have a tremendous deal of knowledge. I am qualified to tutor over 20 subjects, and feel comfortable with grade school through high school subject matter. I also tutor SAT Prep. I believe my life experiences has prepared me to excel in any teaching situation. I currently am a substitute teacher in the Cold Spring Harbor School District and my availability is usually after school, evenings, and on the weekends.
My education consists of a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Business Administration from SUNY Albany, and a Master of Science degree from LIU at C.W Post. I am quite active in coaching sports in the Huntington, N.Y area. I was an all-state baseball player in high school and an all- Long Island soccer player. My career and educational experience has enabled me to be malleable with all students and their varied learning styles.

I have a comprehensive background on Wall Street of 21 years trading government bonds, interest rate swaps, forward rate agreements, bond derivatives, credit default swaps as well as a plethora of other trading vehicles that your average person would never know takes place each day. I am also well versed in the stock market and students can get involved with learning about earnings, and what makes a company perform as well as why a stock is on the move or not. Learning about insurance, health care, savings, and different types of long term investing that is out there for each individual of every economic background can be of great knowledge for a student’s future. Young people of today need to be more aware of their daily financial surroundings and be able to understand why things in the economy happen. I implemented a financial class for upper classmen at a private school on Long Island that deals with today’s economic issues and world problems that affect the currencies, interest rates, and commodity markets on a daily basis. I also have been certified with my series 63 and 7.
