Macq. Business Tutor Jayden
Hi, I'm Jayden! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a Macq. student studying Business.
Employed by Macquarie University as an academic tutor for ACST1001, ACST2001 and AFIN2050.
High quality reviews and grades below...
B of Applied Finance at MQU.
Previously a PAL Leader at MQU for ACST101, ACST201, AFIN250, ECON110 and ECON111.
I have developed a strong sense of self at uni. I have mastered the skill of preparing for final exams; working smart and efficiently with full effort. I have a passion for helping you achieve the grades you desire.
Commonly I will run through the concepts within each weekly topic to ensure you are thinking about them correctly. I am a proponent of understanding rather than memorising, intuitive thought processes, thorough attention to detail and application through practice. You will likely adopt these values, which will help you not only in the unit you're studying with me but all of your future studies.
I can also assist in answering specific questions, marking your work, giving you extra personally made questions within worksheets (some units) and exam preparation.
My teaching speciality units are ACST101, ACST201, AFIN250 and,AFIN329. These are units where I have added the most value to my students learning experiences.
Groups: 2; $65/person, 3; $50/person.

I used Jayden’s tutoring for AFIN329 in Session 2 of 2019 after being unsatisfied with my mark in the mid-semester exam. Unlike other AFIN units, AFIN329 did not allow any notes in the final exam and so I was even more invested in ensuring I thoroughly understood all the concepts and methods of doing calculations. Furthermore, I erred on the side of caution as it was my last semester of my degree.
Jayden is a great tutor who excels in both communication and teaching. Jayden was able to systematically break down each week’s topic and not only show me how to efficiently do the calculations but also make me understand the financial reasoning and method behind the steps. This meant that after our session concluded, I was able to practice questions by myself and further engrain the knowledge required. Jayden’s main strength is his ability to logically break down topics and explain them in an intuitive way which you can easily remember. This led to me be being extremely confident in the unit material and not having any nerves before the exam.
As a result, I did extremely well in the final exam, getting an approximate mark of 50/60. I could have potentially gotten even more had I started my sessions earlier. I did all my sessions in the 2 weeks preceding the final exam, so we had to get through many topics in a condensed time period. This meant I had one topic which I was a bit weaker in. Had I known about Jayden earlier I would have done 1 weekly session instead and even asked him to tutor me for past subjects which were challenging such as AFIN270, AFIN352 and AFIN328.
I highly recommend Jayden as a tutor and would suggest doing a weekly session and maybe 2 extra sessions for the final exam. In this way you will be on top of things throughout the semester and not be rushed for revision.
Thanks again for all the help, Jayden!

I was finding finance 1B hard and reached out to Jayden just before mid sem for help. He thoroughly went through nearly every topic in subject and helped me understand all the details. I highly recommend him if you are finding the subject confusing or difficult because he really helped me out

Jayden was great in simplifying statistical concepts by taking the numbers out of the discussion and using examples to sustain the concepts.
All round good guy and had a lot to offer, would recommend highly!

After starting my first 300 level AFIN unit, after multiple near fails I knew AFIN329 would not be a unit I could just scrape by. A few weeks in I considered dropping the unit but after seeing Jayden’s reviews I thought I’d give him a try just before the mid-semester exam. Even after the first session I felt much more confident and decided to keep the unit. Jayden was a great teacher and was always able to find a way to simplify complex concepts into a way that was easy to understand. In the end, even after a poor mark in the mid semester I was able to achieve a high credit which was much more than I expected.

Before I found Jayden I was really struggling with understanding the concepts behind finance. Jayden was able to truly teach me the science behind the concepts rather then just getting me to memorise formulas. He was engaging and maximised every session with me. He gave me confidence going into exams and I can truly say I would not of passed finance without the help of Jayden. He specialises every session with each student so they can understand the topic in their own unique way. If you need help with anything related to finance or economics Jayden is the guy you must go to.

Jayden was so great! As a law student, in my final semester, I was very stressed about passing ACST201 given that finance is not my strong point. Halfway through the semester I decided to seek help and found Jayden through this site.
He helped me with the assignments along the way and managed to not only teach me, but help me understand the the entirety of the content from start to finish. He was patient, responsive and very knowledgeable. His passion for finance really shines through, contributing to his enthusiastic and effective teaching style.
I managed to achieve more then a pass in this unit and have completed all my studies. I would recommend Jayden to anyone who is need of assistance in understanding concepts and/or looking to excel.
Once again, thanks so much Jayden! You’re the best!

AFIN 329 (Derivative Instruments) is definately one of the hardest units I have had to do and I knew it was going to be difficult to get a pass on my own. Jayden has been an increadible tutor over the semester who has helped me to understand the theory and all the calculations. Jayden is an amazing tutor who is able to communicate and link the difficult concepts and theory in a very straight forward manner which will allow you to understand the topics clearly back to front. He is able to explain theory in great depths for those students who want more than a pass which is increadibly helpful. His extensive knowledge of the topics and his explanantions will definantely allow you to gain confidence is doing well in the unit. He is extremely generous and will not stop until you understand everything. Jayden can adapt to your learning style and can identify where you are stuggling and can focus on that area which has been increadibly helpful. Jayden is also very flexible with time and will do countless hours with you until you are happy. I HIGHLY recommend Jayden as he is increadibly generous and passionate about helping his students do the best they can. If you have the slightest doubt early on in the unit I would recommend you go see Jayden becasue the unit does get harder. Thanks to him I was able to get a distinction which I thought I would never be able to get in this unit.

After failing AFIN329 once, I knew I needed some extra help and Jayden was all that and more. He was very helpful in understanding concepts and would encourage to understand the theory rather than simply memorizing the idea. I would highly recommend Jayden, as if it wasn't for him, I probably wouldn't have been able to get through this subject.

Jayden is a very professional tutor who encourages his students to critically think about finance. I contacted Jayden for help in ACST101 - Finance 1A because I needed a tutor who could help me pass the unit.
From the outset, I feared that I would fail this unit. I had not studied mathematics since year 12 high school in 2009. Moreover, I had completely forgotten how to do basic algebra. Jayden was very adaptable in the sense that he committed the first 2-3 weeks helping me understand algebra.
Another advantage of tuition with Jayden is that each Finance 1A topic can be discussed and critically examined in further detail. This is something that cannot be done within the lectures and tutorials.
I am very confident in my reading and writing abilities, but I needed more time understanding and applying myself in maths, particularly finance. Fortunately, Jayden was supportive with tutoring me at a slower pace. Jayden was the best support when I felt like giving up.
For anyone who values in-depth and tailored tuition, Jayden is the best person to consult.
In sum, I got an 83 (Distinction) in the unit and I'm on my way to completing my BCommerce/BLaws degree.

I was in desperate need for help with a finance subject, and Jayden was able to see me on short notice at Macquarie. He was super helpful and explained the concepts and technical stuff in a very straightforward way. He helped me significantly improve my grade in the subject.

Jayden is an excellent tutor! He was incredibly patient with me as finance was not my strong suit. Explained each and every topic in great detail and tried to help me understand the logic behind a concept rather than just applying formulas. He also adjusts his teaching technique depending on your goals.

To say that Jayden is an amazing tutor is an understatement!
As a Marketing student, I knew that Finance was not my strong point. After hearing numerous people tell me that ACST101 was one of the hardest subjects and also knowing a few friends who had failed the subject, I wanted to find a tutor to help me to pass the unit. From the first tutoring session, it was clear that Jayden knew his content inside out. He would find different ways to explain the content, making sure I fully understood it before moving on. Even outside of tutoring sessions he was extremely helpful and always willing to answer any questions I had or to mark practice papers I had completed.
Overall, I managed to not only pass, but I achieved a 94, the highest mark I’ve ever gotten in a subject. Of course I could not have done it without Jayden’s help, so I highly recommend him to anyone!!

Jayden is a miracle worker! I found out about him through this site and thought I would give him a shot at tutoring me for AFIN329 - Derivatives.
I started panicking 2 weeks from the mid-semester exam. I was quite overwhelmed with this unit as it is probably the hardest subject that I had ever come across, and I am sure that some of you could say the same.
I was also quite worried since a few friends I knew did not pass the subject first time round.
This subject explored derivatives in detail - quite mathematical but also tested your understanding of the theory behind it. To be very honest, a lot of my first few years at uni, I rope learned both concepts and formula's. But you really could not do this in this unit...
Jayden was great at breaking down these concepts for me. He even explained them multiple times in different ways to drill it into my head for the final exam.
As a result, I achieved a proud 78! Thank you Jayden - I will definitely be seeing you for future units. I would also recommend - if you are sitting on the fence to be tutored or not... Just do it! You will not regret it with Jayden.

I was introduced to Jayden by a friend of mine who had organised a tutoring session with him and I was able to join. Throughout the session Jayden showed his extensive knowledge of the content but also showed it's relevancy to the assessments. He was very detailed in his explanation of the work and ensured we understood the reasoning and foundations of the work we were completing. He was very supportive of all the questions we had and made me feel encouraged to ask questions or to have him clarify something. I would honestly recommend his services to anyone.

ayden tutored myself in my first semester of university where I was studying Fundamentals of Corporate Finance. I had not studied mathematics since stage 5 in my secondary education so in the first few weeks, felt overwhelmed by the course content. Jayden quickly became my primary source of knowledge, his sessions with me were as engaging as they were informative. Once I had developed core concepts Jayden was able to assist me in applying these to more complex problems. Jayden's adaptable teaching styles to cater for all skill levels and continuously provide work which challenges yourself is one of his greatest strengths. Jayden's familiarity with course content allows him to identify the difficulty of different questions and align them to best suit the student's ability. With Jayden's assistance, my final exam mark was well into the 90's which resulted in me achieving a high distinction which I believe would not have been possible without Jayden's tutorage. The greatest compliment I can bestow upon Jayden is he values the marks his student achieves as if it were his own. This selfless character trait is the essence of what truly makes him a great tutor. It is rare to find anyone within the teaching profession as a whole, let alone a university tutor to be so well acquainted with engaging students, as such with great pleasure I highly recommend Jayden's services to anyone who requires academic assistance.

Jayden knows his content back to front. If you have any specific questions he will be able to answer them with great detail to make sure you properly understand the concept. He is also very adaptable to your study level and situation, i.e if you're cramming and don't know anything or if you're aiming for a High Distinction and want some further understanding. He is a great tutor and I highly recommended him to anyone studying ECON or AFIN/ACST units.

During the session that i study with him, I have learn a lot from him. I would highly recommend Jayden to anyone who want a better understand and improve their mark.

Jayden is a very nice tutor！not only does he help me in one unit, he also helps me in other units. He doesn't teach ECON204 but when i have questions about ECON204, he helps me to solve the problems. Jayden also helps students to understand the knowledge of the units

Jayden is a very enthusiastic as a tutor and holds a strong passion for helping his students not only maximise marks but also fully understanding concepts. After a few tutoring sessions with Jayden a was way more confident with the course and was also able to do much better as a result. I highly recommend Jayden to anyone trying to engage in their studies abit more, understand topics in a greater depth or simply just trying to maximise marks.
