About Bud


Bio

In the past 8 years I have been tutoring Math from elementary school to AP Calculus and a few college level courses.

I also tutor Finance, Physics, business writing and standardized tests prep such as SSAT, ISEE, SAT, ACT, GRE and GMAT.

What I enjoy most is seeing many of my students succeed in their respective endeavors, including those who got college credits because they achieved high scores in their AP Calculus exams.

Specific to Finance, I can add real-world first hand insights...

In the past 8 years I have been tutoring Math from elementary school to AP Calculus and a few college level courses.

What I enjoy most is seeing many of my students succeed in their respective endeavors, including those who got college credits because they achieved high scores in their AP Calculus exams.

Specific to Finance, I can add real-world first hand insights from more than 25 years experience working in investment banking, corporate finance, wealth management, estate planning, life insurance and angel-investing.

I earned my BSc in Mathematics from the University of Washington, Cum Laude, and my MBA in Finance from New York University Stern School of Business. I speak several languages including English, Indonesian, Malay and elementary Dutch, German and Mandarin.

I enjoy tennis, playing guitar and piano, travel and good food. My wife of 26 years teaches 3rd graders at a nearby school and my daughter works as a credit analyst for one of the biggest regional banks in the Pacific Northwest.
