About Me

Experience Summary

I have tutored dozens of students in SAT math, ACT math, Economics and high school math with excellent results. Additionally, I have also helped candidates working on their GMAT, MBA in Finance, Series 7, and Series 66 exams. One on One tutoring has always proven to be the most effective teaching method. I believe that everyone has the capability to learn. The secret sauce is the right approach and it takes a sensitive teacher to find the correct recipe that works. The proper approach depends on your goals. If you are good and want to get better, that requires one technique. If you are intimidated by Math and you have always struggled, that requires a different method. Everyone is teachable one on one when motivated. As a tutor it is very rewarding to be sitting next to a student at the exact moment they "GET IT" and then go on to do well on their test.

Teaching Style

I work from a baseline of diagnostic test results and design instructions that will address deficiencies. A course of study to achieve a goal is usually the best approach but I can work under deadlines as well. Flexible scheduling can include evenings, nights, and weekends.

Other Comments

My qualifications include graduating high school in the top 1% of my class, Cornell University with a BS in Operations Research, Tau Beta Pi (Engineering Honor Society), and an MBA in finance from Cornell University. I am able to relate to my students very well having already tutored many with results that speak for themselves. I have 3 children with the youngest in College. I live in Northern New Jersey and I teach Financial Literacy to High School Freshman as part of my day job.

Subject Commentary

ACT Proficiency: Expert
I love tutoring! Working with a student and creating a customized learning curriculum makes every new student a challenge and opportunity. ACT math seems daunting to many students at first, particularly after the first real test. It does not have to be. Once broken down, my students understand that improving your score is a very achievable goal. As soon as a student understands that tangible results are possible, I find that they become not only willing but enthusiastic about the work required to get the score they want. A short conversation is the best way to learn about me, about my process, and see if it fits your needs.

I hold a BS in Operations Research and an MBA in Finance and Marketing from the Johnson School at Cornell University.

"Insightful and knowledgeable tutor!" - Jeri Montclair, NJ on 9/29/2015 We met Jamie yesterday and he jumped right in. He quickly identified the problem that has been hindering our 10th grader.

With this technique Jamie indicated that our student will make consistent progress and get ahead of the class. We are looking forward to working with Jamie!

SERIES 7 This is one of my top subjects! Proficiency: Expert
I currently hold a Series 7 and Passed the test with a grade of 92. The test is composed of three general areas of proficiency. One is understanding equities, options, bonds, and economics. The other is memorization of the rules, regulations, and laws required. The third area is suitability of investments for the client. Each needs different study techniques. I work with my students by developing a customized study plan that addresses each are specific to the student's strengths and weaknesses.

Very knowledgeable. Consider this a strong recommendation. Thanks Jamie.
