Tutor needed- university Finance subject

Posted by Mish S.



Due date
Friday, 2nd Aug 2013
I am doing a Grad Dip in Business Admin and I need a tutor for my Financial Management (Fin Admin) subject. It's a generalist finance subject - the aim is not for me to qualify as a finance professional (accountant etc) but for me to competently perform business management tasks such as assessing the merits of investing in particular projects by calculating the value of future cashflows, interpreting financial statements, making decisions re debt vs equity, etc.

You need the following skills and experience:
- Evidence that you have achieved a grade of Credit or higher in a similar subject that covered the areas:
* Cash flow valuation over time
* Evaluation of projects
* Implications of investment decisions
* Basic issues in use of debt vs equity
* Determining required ROI
- Ability to confidently and correctly apply spreadsheet functions (PMT, PV, FV, etc) to written scenarios
- Excellent English language communication skills
- Ability to patiently and clearly explain methods and solutions

Tutoring times / arrangements:
- I need 1 hour tuition per week between now and 13 Oct (For the right tutor this will mean a minimum of 10 sessions.)
- I can be flexible re day and time of our weekly meeting.
- We can use my computer for workings.
- We can meet either in Darlinghurst (Oxford Street, between Riley & Crown Sts) or in Surry Hills (5 min walk from Central Station)
- For face-to-face tutoring I will pay $40/hr. There is no additional payment for transport/parking. Payment will be made via PayPal immediately on conclusion of meeting.
- We could also meet remotely via Skype, but only if you
* have your own computer and
* are familiar with sharing Google spreadsheets for us to work through simultaneously
* or are familiar with screen-sharing via Skype so that we can at least see the same spreadsheet simultaneously
- For skype-based tutoring I will pay $25/hr. Payment will be made via PayPal immediately on conclusion of meeting.
- The text is "Fundamentals of Corporate Finance - ed 5"; Ross, Christensen, Drew et al.

Payment summary:
- Face-to-face tutoring: $40/hr.
- Skype-based tutoring: $25/hr.
No additional payment for transport/parking.
Payment will be made via PayPal immediately on conclusion of each meeting.

Hi Alex,
Thanks for responding to my task. Are you able to provide a copy of your qualification? I know it sounds picky but I've had experiences hiring finance tutors only to find that they struggled to understand/explain the problems themselves. You can scan & email a copy to: mish at

Also, what arrangement are you thinking of - remote or face to face? What days/hrs are you available?

Hello Mish, I think I can help. My degree is in accounting, finance & economics. I am a qualified accountant. I also have my CFA (chartered financial analyst). I work for a bank and spend my day looking at excel. I am often called upon to help friends with finance diplomas or their masters. Regards Alex
