Qualifications & Experience

I tutor by analogy -- I find a related topic which you understand and use that concept to explain the current topic. That, combined with a deep knowledge of business, economics, & history, enables me to cement your understanding thru multiple examples. Abstract concepts without practical examples = learning soon to be forgotten.

My life mission has been analyzing the past in order to change the future. My core attributes are analysis, organization, and business communication.

I have started and/or managed 6 companies, including marketing research, investment banking, software development, a pension fund, personal care, and a business consulting firm. I have underwritten loans to $100 million and managed portfolios to $650 million.

I have an inquisitive nature, with deep knowledge and interests in business, marketing, demographics, technology & science, international commerce, and outsourcing.

I have performed hundreds of business projections/forecasts for entities in all economic sectors, giving me a quick grasp of virtually all business models and Excel functions.
