ExperienceI have been tutoring over the last 1.5 years on wyzant. You can find my profile and excellent reviews here: http://www.wyzant.com/Tutors/FinMathWallStreetTutor
I spent most of my last 10+ years doing research&trading in quantitative finance. While at Stanford I have also worked as a TA, teaching classes in finance, economics and physics. I have been helping students with 1-to-1 tutoring sessions as well (teaching both science subjects as well as foreign languages: German and French)
I have experience in helping both high-school and undergrad/grad students. Given my background and experience I am very comfortable in tutoring the following subjects: mathematics (calculus, algebra, geometry, diff equations), finance (e.g. valuation, securities, trading, derivatives), economics (e.g. micro or macro), econometrics, statistics and quantitative modeling.
Given my work experience in the hedge fund business, I am also providing consulting on areas related to trading, risk management, quantitative/systematic strategies, fixed income and derivatives.

"Focused, Knowledgeable with Clear Explanations"
- Lanvi K. New York, NY on 4/1/14
In addition to being knowledgeable and experienced in the subject matters he is teaching, Dan's teaching style is engaging and he is able to relate ideas in a way that is tailored to my learning style. Highly recommended!
"Extremely knowledgeable and readily available"
- Joshua P. Brooklyn, NY on 6/3/13
Despite taking several statistics and econometrics courses in college and using both professionally, I decided to refresh on the underlying theory via self-study of DeGroot and Schervish's Probability and Statistics, 4th Ed. Dan provided expert answers and supporting expositions to all of my questions, which generally centered around proofs as opposed to calculations. I find these types of questions less tractable and thus more difficult to explain to someone else; however, Dan achieved that objective on every occasion. I will continue to work with Dan and highly recommend him for help with probability and statistics.
"An amazing tutor"
- Josh H. Knoxville, TN on 2/16/13
I Just have to say that Dan is an amazing tutor. He is really clear with instructions, and will stop and take the time to make sure that you understand concepts before getting down to the quantitative side. We had a sessions on bond pricing, and going into the session it would be fair to say the material felt over my head, but after the session, I really got a good handle on the material. His method of instruction is also more then what I expected. He does not use skype, but the platform he uses allows for powerpoint sharing, voice, and video communication. Also, there is a separate whiteboard component where the mathematical work can be shared, so you are not just being told what to do but shown the steps as well. I would say that Dan is really good, and if I have to get another session, then I would have no problem choosing him again.
"Super clear and enthusiastic."
- Jeremy L. New York, NY on 11/27/12
Made learning about complex financial markets and instruments much easier than I have encountered with other instructors. Gave very tangible examples in context.
"Devoted and will make you understand the topic fully."
- Martyna O. New York, NY on 11/20/12
Dan's approach is first to make sure that you understand theory. When you understand it, he will help you with practical usage of it (but he won't do it for you since he wants you to understand it). Whenever he would leave you with unsolved problems, he would be thinking about it on his free time and will e-mail you with solution, even after the tutoring lesson. He is worth recommending.
