In high school, Ernesto was President of the Academic Honor Society, Math Honor Society and the Art Club. He was Vice President of the Student Council, and scored a perfect 5 on every AP test offered at his small high school in upstate New York. At Harvard, Ernesto developed a love for the lens through which Economists saw the world, and thus concentrated in that field. He also found the field of Statistics to be incredibly useful, and devoted much of his coursework there. While at Harvard, Ernesto tutored his peers in Economics through the Harvard Bureau of Study Council. Ernesto also founded an SAT Course, which he taught in upstate New York.
After college, Ernesto spent 4 years working on the investment team at the Harvard Endowment, where he helped manage over $40 billion in university assets. After being admitted to MIT's MBA program, Ernesto spent 4 months working at a local Boston startup as a Data Scientist, where he honed his Python and R skills, while immersing himself in Boston's entrepreneurial scene. Ernesto is now studying at MIT, where he hopes to launch his own startup.
Ernesto has a wide variety of tutoring expertise, and has successfully helped students of all aptitude and experience levels over the course of his eight years as a tutor. His areas of expertise include (but are not limited to) GMAT, CFA, SAT/ ACT prep, Economics, Finance, Statistics, and Probability.
Outside of tutoring and school, Ernesto enjoys painting, drawing, and woodworking. He loves furniture, industrial, and architectural design. Ernesto also loves to travel and take road trips with friends (which have included driving across the Balkans, the American West, and the savannas of Kenya).
“Richard has been wonderful to work with and helps a lot with keeping me motivated and on track with studying. I feel like he is really invested in helping me improve and believes in my ability to do so. I am very happy with my decision to work with him over taking other online courses for GRE prep.”
