Bio

I'm a former Economics Professor at Tufts University and have spent many years on Wall Street involved in heavy analytical work including International Financial Markets, Global Macroeconomic Trading and Foreign Exchange Risk Management to name a few. I was among the top-rated professors at Tufts, and have experience teaching material to new hires on Wall Street and to seminars and large audiences alike.

I'm a former Economics Professor at Tufts University and have spent many years on Wall Street involved in heavy analytical work including International Financial Markets, Global Macroeconomic Trading and Foreign Exchange Risk Management to name a few. I was among the top-rated professors at Tufts, and have experience teaching material to new hires on Wall Street and to seminars and large audiences alike.

I can break pretty complex stuff down into digestible bites so students of all backgrounds and proficiencies in economics can excel.

I've also spent a great deal of time coaching athletics for kids and young adults. Whether it be academics or sports, there’s nothing more gratifying than seeing the light bulb go off in somebody's eyes.

If you’re willing to put in the work, I can be integral part of your success. For more information, don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

Lenny knows his stuff!

I reviewed some trade concepts with Lenny. I really like how he didn't just answer the questions, but explained how we arrived at the ultimate answers in a practical way with speech examples.

A Master of his Craft

Lenny was great. He made all subjects easy to follow and included me to answer question on what we were going over. I plan to keep Lenny in my quiver of people to reach out too, and for another session. No doubt I would recommend!

Garrett, 1 lesson with Lenny

Clear, concise, and knowledgable.

I spent two hours a day for the three days leading up to my Microeconomics with Calculus final preparing with Lenny. The way in which he is able to explain difficult topics in a concise and clear manner is unparalleled to any other tutor I have employed. I ended up receiving an A+ on my final and couldn't have done it without his help.
