My son failed his first attempt at the Series 7 exam and obviously realized he needed assistance. I connected with WyzAnt reviewing various tutors’ credentials and experience. I fortunately selected a wonderful instructor named John S. My son soon learned John was extremely knowledgeable about the test information and easily related to his somewhat unusual learning style, breaking down complicated information into understandable, applicable knowledge. John, two weeks before the scheduled test unfortunately had a medical issue requiring hospitalization. Unbelievably John, from his hospital bed, continued his Skype contact and remarkably continued lessons with my son, making sure he was ready for the test. This type of dedication is rarely seen. The end result was SUCCESS my son passed the test and attributes this to John’s incredible knowledge and teaching skills. I recommend John without hesitation. He is a hugely valuable asset for those requiring tutelage.
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
