MBA graduate with experience in investing and finance offering lessons in different areas of Math online or in Pittsburgh.

Methodology

My teaching method will most likely be hands on. With math or finance or business I believe that someone who is willing to teach you hands on will be the most effective. I like to challenge my students and to make them really think. To me this is one of the best ways to get a student to learn. I will also try to bring in real world applications that could increase the student's engagement into the problems. I am adaptive and able to change my methods if I can see that the student is not understanding or comprehending the subject the way I am currently trying to teach it to them.

Background

I am MBA graduate with 3 years of investment management experience. I, unfortunately, have no professional experience tutoring, but I have helped many cousins and friends with math over the years. I use many different types of math everyday, including algebra, statistics, geometry, and more. I am great with young and old kids and even college level adults.

Alex's resume

Founder & CEO, Nox Capital Management, Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 2019 – Current
 I developed a unique investing strategy through research and testing that takes advantage of certain inefficiencies and opportunities in the stock market. The strategy is executed through algorithms.
 The strategy also includes loss mitigation on the downside, thus limiting losses in a way that makes it very difficult to lose money over the long term.
 Year-to-date the fund is up 31.15% (as of 7/15/2019), outperforming the S&P 500 benchmark, which has returned 21.26% year-to-date.
 Since the start of 2016 back-testing results show the fund would have an annualized return of 36.24%, over 23% better than the S&P 500, which has a 12.67% average per year in the same time frame.
 Helped to lead the fund to have an 84% success rate on investments with only 16% of our investments losing money.
Founder & CIO, Van Wassen Capital, Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 2017 – Jan. 2019
 The fund returned 42.33% in 2018, while the S&P 500 returned -4.38% (after dividends).
 From inception the fund has an average yearly return of 46.06%, while the S&P 500 returned an annualized return of 6.59% for those two years.
 Founded the fund to help my parents invest part of their retirement savings.
Corporate Trust Administrator, Bank of New York Mellon Client Financial Management Group, Pittsburgh, PA,
Dec. 2014 – Jan. 2017
 Improved client relations by helping clients choose low risk means to invest funds and maintain returns.
 Selected by management to drive solutions for issues affecting other employees’ clients, enabling client satisfaction and retention.
 Achieved monthly Debt Service goal of 99% of payments completed
 Worked directly with managers and clients to verify all payments were timely and accurate.
 Helped to manage relationships with high profile clients.
 Developed and implemented risk management policies/procedures to protect bank from potential audits.
Intern, Equifax Inc. Mortgage Appraisal Department, Coraopolis, PA, Jun. 2012 – Aug. 2012
 Streamlined process to complete tasks to surpass daily and weekly goals on an individual and team basis.
 Created bi-weekly team presentations and presented to upper management highlighting team performance.
