After a questionable semester and academic probation, I worked with Buffalo Academy to help with three classes over the summer. I loved everyone I worked with and finished with three A's! I know how to plan my time and schedule thanks to the project management addition. I currently have one private tutor through them as well as a group session with classmates. Mori is very personable and takes time and energy to work with you and to help in ANYWAY. They didn't have a tutor for one of my summer classes but the next day I get an email that they had found one!

In my sophomore year at the University of Colorado I switched my major to economics and had serious concern regarding my performance in my most difficult classes. After failing a midterm and conjuring feelings of hopelessness regarding much of the material, I realized I had to do something different. Luckily, I found the Buffalo Academy. Within only a few hours of tutoring there my feelings of stress and uncertainty turned in to confidence. I was able to spend the rest of my semesters at CU practically care free because I knew that the support I got from Buffalo Academy would provide me with the understanding of any school material I needed help with. If you want to gain better understanding of material, get better grades, build confidence and rid yourself of stress, check out Buffalo Academy.

I am a tutor for Buffalo Academy and it is by far the best tutoring job (out of several) I've ever had!! Mori and Ryan are great at communicating with the tutors and the process is so easy. The compensation is great and they set you up with the students needing tutoring. So glad I found them!

I'm an organic chemistry tutor for Buffalo Academy and I have really enjoyed working with them so far. They help put me in touch with students and I receive a little side money that helps support me while I'm earning my PhD (in organic chemistry). Everything has been really efficient and no complaints so far.

Best tutoring experience I have ever had.  Whenever I needed help in undergraduate school, Buffalo Academy never failed me.  The owner, Mori, is a great teacher and truly cares for the success of his students.

Buffalo Academy is awesome! The tutors are great and really know their stuff. They make it so flexible and they have so many tutors that teach so many different subjects. The rate is great and it's been an excellent learning experience working one-on-one with students to get their grades better. I've met some great people through Buffalo Academy!

I really can't say enough about the Academy and Mori. The support they gave our college student son was wonderful, but the way the program augmented his studies was incredible. He learned so much that wasn't covered in typical college courses and was fully prepared (and qualified) as he entered the workforce full time. They were fully transparent about the cost and what we could expect and put us in touch with former students.

Buffalo Academy is great to work for. Good pay, flexible hours, tutor what you want to tutor and have a place with everything you need to do it. Best college job I ever had.

Mori and I worked together at his ERM Academy in Boulder, Colorado for two years. From the moment I met Mori I felt like I had known him for years. He became a good friend and teacher within the first session. Mori is an excellent teacher who is very knowledge in his field. His real life examples make for the best learning experience that anyone could ask for. Risk management is not an easy field and Mori does an excellent job of breaking down complex subjects so that a new student, or even a seasoned student, can relate and understand. When I signed up for his class, I did not know what to expect. What I got was a great introduction and in depth understanding of the Risk Management industry. Mori’s endless connections in the field and expert advice make for an added bonus when working with such a great guy and good friend.

– Christopher Burnham, First Vice President of Investments at Marcus & Millichap

I worked with Mori at his ERM Academy for two years, and he’s been my mentor and great friend for the last six. I can honestly say that nobody is more passionate about creating a new class of hard-working, ethical, and analytically superior students. When I signed on to his program, I didn’t realize I was gaining a career coach and friend for life, but his global network and seemingly endless connections have opened unbelievable doors for me and the rest of the ERM Academy graduates. Mori has a heart of gold and has been the largest influence in my professional career. I use his training every day and I know that he will always be ready to jump on a call and talk about what’s next in my career.

– Alec Hugo, Senior Sales Operations Analyst at OpenTable

Throughout the 6 years of knowing Mori I have never stopped learning. Whether I was working with him, tutoring his students or simply reaching out to see how he was doing he has always helped to progress my skill set while also being a close friend. The ERM Academy taught me the finest Risk Management techniques backed by real-life examples, running in parallel with professionalism and social responsibility. I looked to apply my skills in ways I was unable to in my college courses and I was ecstatic when I achieved this within the Academy. I cannot thank Mori enough for supporting my thirst for knowledge and pushing me further than I thought was possible. From Credit Risk to Predictive Modeling to Marketing Analytics he has helped me think of data in ways I had not been able to before. I find myself looking back at the hours spent working as a Risk Analyst frequently, cherishing the impact it has had on my career and character. Mori is a leader, a colleague and a friend. I thank him for the lessons he’s taught and the experiences he’s shared. I hope, but am confident, that he can continue his tremendous success wherever he ventures next.

– Jon Kelly, Revenue Operations Manager at YipitData

I’ve known Mori now for over 4 years and in that time I don’t think I’ve found someone who’s more passionate in what he does. Mori has been not only an excellent mentor and teacher but a great friend as well. He’s created something truly special in the ERM risk academy and without the academy, as well as his unique brand of tutelage, I would not be in the position I am now. I have yet to come across anyone with as strong of an analytical skillset as Mori and he’s taught me almost everything I know about risk management and the finance industry in general. It’s been a pleasure to know him and I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly then Mori.

Marcus Martinez, Industry Insights Analyst at ALG, A TrueCar Company

At a time when integrity and professional ethics proves absent in the corporate work world, I could not have chosen a more suited mentor than Mori to reinforce my morals, teach me the underlying mechanics of the world’s largest corporations, and most importantly, develop the technical skills that would make me competivive in the most competitive of job interviews, locally and internationally. Spending two years with Mori earned me interviews with investment banks, asset management groups, and other Fortune 500 companies both abroad and in the States. His circumferential curriculum and interactive teaching style enabled me to interview for positions in credit risk management, credit reporting, corporate finance, corporate development, market risk management, and general financial analysis. I can genuinely say if it wasn’t for Mori I would not be one of the few American graduates (Bachelor’s degree) who was fortunate enough to find employment in a cutthroat and extremely competitive Fortune 500 job market. Every day on the job I utilitize the technical skills Mori taught me including VBA, Macros, expert Excel modeling, Monte Carlo simulation, statistical analysis in finance, automated reporting, SAS, and Visio. It can be difficult to prove yourself a competitive candidate in international corporations when completing your education in Colorado. However I promise your investment with Mori, in time and money, will open more doors for you [across the world] than an investment with any other mentor or career coach could. Thank you, Mori, for a terrific two years.

Brooks Kanski, Director at Province, Inc.

 

In the world of risk and analytics there is no better. Mori is a master of both insurance and credit risk with a proven track record of success. I attended Mori’s Enterprise Risk Management Academy as well as worked under him at ERM Risk Advisors. I learned more in the time I spent with Mori than I did my entire undergraduate career, and I can confidently say that he is the reason I am successful In my role today. A friend, and a colleague whom I am fortunate to have. 

– Thomas Waldschmidt, Data Science Analyst II at Goal Structured Solutions, Inc. 

My experience with Mori at the ERM Academy altered my career projection and future goals.  I was able to receive one on one training to lay out the land of data, how it’s used in risk across various industries. The skills obtained are those that will last a lifetime and give an edge in the workplace that is unobtainable otherwise.  The exposure and experience Mori has and shares with you you can’t find anywhere else. It gives the experience and knowledge that is not available at an institution such as the University of Colorado.

– Tesha J, Business Robotics Analyst Risk Control, UBS Bank

Mori offers more than just a simple education- he provides mentorship. There is so much to know going into your career. When you first start the job process, you can see that school prepared you with a brief outline of what is to be expected. At ERM Academy, I learned to spend my time efficiently, approach problems and projects rationally, and apply my skills thoroughly. ERM Academy provided me with the above and beyond competitive advantage.
