Hi! I worked as a researcher at a think tank in Washington DC for 2 years before getting my MSc in Economics from LSE. My general teaching formula has been 1. Illustrative example, then 2. General concept, then 3. Lots of intuition to cement understanding. I’ve had so many classes where you’re only given the concept, and I’ve found that this method really helps!

I worked in the financial services industry for four years and held Series 6 and 63 licenses that allowed me to market financial products to retail investors. I also passed all three levels of the CFA Institute exams on first attempts. I am here to help students at all levels in Accounting and Finance to understand the fundamental concepts needed to have a strong foundation.

I've tutored hundreds of students over the past 12 years. I enjoy tailoring the experience to individual student's interests so lessons learned are more memorable and applicable for future use. I take great pride in helping students find their own "aha" moments, and will always look for creative ways to engage students while leveraging tutoring best practices.

Gooroos tutors are experts in and can help students at any level of study (including APs, college, and beyond) with all economics subjects, such as principles of economics, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and econometrics. We also offer help with many economics-related business topics.
Your Gooroo tutor will help you understand microeconomics concepts and frameworks and apply them to solving problems, often showing your work via graphs. For example, if you are struggling with understanding monopolies, your tutor will explain why it’s in a monopolist’s best interest to produce less than the efficient amount. In addition, you’ll learn why a monopolist faces a downward sloping MR curve, while a competitive firm faces a flat one. You’ll be able to show your understanding on a graph. Similarly, your tutor will patiently and eloquently guide you in understanding competition, demand, supply, price floors, cost and revenue, opportunity cost, specialization, price discrimination, deadweight loss, externalities, elasticity, and more. Your tutor will help you come up with a study plan and even assign you homework problems to solidify your knowledge and prepare you for upcoming exams.
Similarly as with microeconomics, your Gooroo tutor will delve deep into any macroeconomics topics you are having trouble with, so you can understand the principles and then apply them to solving problems, oftentimes with graphs. Your tutor can help you learn basic principles, supply and demand, theory of consumer choice, production and costs, firm behavior and market structures (monopolies, oligopolies, etc.), factor markets, market failure and the roles of the government, and more. Your tutor will help you come up with a study plan and even assign you homework problems to solidify your knowledge and prepare you for upcoming exams.
Your Gooroo tutor will help you master econometrics, an important field that applies mathematical models to economic data, and is required for analyzing data pertaining to almost everything – medicine, economics, policy making, etc. If you are taking a class, understanding the overall picture of where the concepts fit in, taking notes, always being inquisitive and asking questions and practicing econometrics problems are crucial in your learning of econometrics. Your Gooroo tutor will help you break down concepts, assumptions, application, and interpretation of results.
Students studying econometrics often find supplementary materials helpful in their studies - here are some useful books you can use in addition to your textbook and/or class slides:
Basic Econometrics by Damodar Gujarati
Econometrics by Example by Damodar Gujarati
Introductory Econometrics: A Modern Approach by Jeffrey M. Wooldridge
