PICK ME! PICK ME!! More than 25 years of teaching, consulting, and management have taught me one important thing - people want you to care about their success before they become comfortable with letting you lead them. I believe I am an effective tutor because, regardless of the age or level of education of the individual I'll be guiding, a rapport will be built that will allow us to work well together. I've had substantial business experience, which allows me to bring a broad, real world pe... [more]

American History

This is my first love as a teaching subject - so much so, that when I plan to teach in the K-12 system, I will teach American History. I have tutored this informally, and used history as a basis for my work in the financial management field - the history of the financial markets in this country. I have broad knowledge of the Founding Fathers and how our government was structured, as well as a working knowledge of the actions that led to seminal changes in our Constitution and laws.

Writing

In my opinion, the ability to write will be a major point of differentiating members entering the workforce in the future. As a professor in college, I focused substantial attention on proper writing basics, and held students accountable to high standards of written communications - as a method of improving their future earning potential. As a business consultant, I write marketing material and proposals for all of my clients.

Macroeconomics

I believe that individuals make decisions about money based upon scarcity and risk. It is also the basis of what we learn about economic theory - and this is one of the easiest ways I learned to explain the concepts of the subject. I completed my MBA in Global Business Management using this method, and I believe that it is easily communicated to and understood by anyone who has made purchase decisions.

Business

I have been a successful franchisee with two national chains, as well as having assisted others in writing business plans to start their own businesses. As a management consultant, I guide existing business owners in developing the appropriate systems and controls to generate more profit and cash flow. When working with me, you get the best of years of big company experience matched with an understanding of how to apply best practices to multiple business entities.


Series 63

I believe I would be well-qualified to tutor students to assist them in passing the series 63 exam. Having passed the exam twice (due to leaving and re-entering the industry), I have more than sufficient familiarity with the techniques needed to pass the exam. Having spent more than 8 years in a management in the financial services industry, I have successfully assisted many individuals in getting through the Series 63. I'm confident that I'd be able to do the same for many others.


Series 7

I first passed the Series 7 exam on Dec. 12, 1987 on my first attempt - during a time when only 16% of individuals passed on their first attempt. I left the industry in 1999, and when I returned in 2006, I had to take the test, again. I scored an 84 the first time I passed the test, and this time, I scored a 95. As a manager in the securities industry for 8 years, I have worked with many individuals to become comfortable with the variety of securities exams. I believe I can assist others in understanding the concepts and doing well.


Fitness

I believe I would be well-qualified to tutor a broad array of subjects under the heading of fitness. I have been a certified personal trainer and a franchise owner of a number of health supplement retail locations. Also, I am Certified in Sports Nutrition, and I am completing my Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition, which an emphasis on setting up programs to improve athletic performance for high schoolers through improved nutrition.


Series 6

Having passed the Series 7 exam more than 30 years ago, I have learned how to teach virtually all of the concepts that will help a student understand how to get through the Series 6 exam. Students will learn how to apply the concepts using the real life examples I bring from years working on Wall Street - which is far more useful than memorizing charts and mnemonics. Additionally, I have developed my own coursework that can be used along with the material from the major prep textbooks, which will simplify the learning and speed the time from start to pass.


Series 65

This exam focuses not only on the content of the material being learned, but the application of it, as well. Having trained and managed investment advisers since 1994, I have learned effective techniques of delivering the knowledge required to pass the licensing exams, and as a tutor, I possess a near-perfect record in getting my students across the finish line. Being successful is about how to apply the information, and my experience is the key to that success.


Series 66

I began providing Investment Advisory services in 1988. Different than the other securities exam, this test focuses on application of the material - not just the knowledge of it. My extensive experience in the industry allows me to use real world examples to help crystallize the concepts that students must grasp to successfully pass the exam.
