I am a retired Wall Street research executive turned teacher/tutor and have spent the last 2 years teaching and tutoring students in Westchester for standardized tests and academic subjects (high school, college, and graduate level). I have taught over two hundred students in the classroom and have privately tutored over 30 students in: Statistics (both AP and college level), Physics (regents, high school, AP, and SAT II), Math (SAT, SAT II level 1 and 2, Algebra, Trig, Pre-Calc, and Business Math), and Business (Graduate level Finance and Marketing). I have tutored students preparing for the SAT, SSAT, and ISEE exams and am qualified and prepared to tutor the ACT and GMAT tests.
My SAT students have had extremely positive results, averaging over 275 points of improvement. My last class of 20 students averaged over 300 points of improvements. I have had similar success preparing students for SAT subject tests and AP exams. My students benefit from my comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter, high energy, enthusiasm, and patience. I spend time getting to know the individual needs of my students and then tailor a program of study that best addresses both subject matter gaps and test taking strategies and skills. I develop a rapport with my students often utilizing my quick wit and good humor and this relationship helps to motivate them and elicit their best performance. In addition, I utilize frequent testing and feedback to reinforce their progress.
My academic credentials are excellent and include a B.A. in Economics (summa cum laude) and an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business. With regard to my standardized tests, I took the GMAT test in 1983 and scored in the top two percent.
