Outstanding Tutor!

After failing two Series 7 Tests by a few points, Karen really pulled out the critical points/information needed to pass this test. She uses visual and storytelling techniques to really engage the student and make hard concepts easier to understand. She also focused on specific areas I was weak in based on my practice tests and we focused on getting those areas better. A combination of these techniques helped pull my score over the finish line. Last week I passed the Series 7. I can't thank Karen enough!

Thank you for sharing your tutoring experience. You put in the time and effort along with a little of my help and guidance. All the best.

Series 66

I took one tutor class with Karen. She is very patient and nice. I pointed out the materials that I need to improve and she is able to explain the materials to me immediately. I am going to take the second class soon.

Great Series 65 tutor

Karen is brilliant! She’s very experienced in the industry and helps relate real life situations to the material to help you grasp the concept! I will continue to work with her up until the exam. She is so helpful and a great teacher!

A Tutor that helps simplify complex content

Karen has a unique ability to help simplify tough subject matter into small understandable concepts. I am a very visual learner so her diagrams and drawings are awesome!

Tutor responded:

I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and experience. I enjoy tutoring and helping my students. Thanks.

Simple and patient

Karen taught me options for series 7 exam. She taught me a simple way to understand options and I already did 50 questions and only got 2 wrong! She is patient and encouraging! I will book another session so we can go in depth of options strategies and continue with bonds/equities!

Diana, 6 lessons with Karen
Tutor responded:

Thank you for sharing your experience and I’m so happy that your score reflects that you were able to apply what you learned in our lesson.

License for Series 66

Karen is a very nice, smart, powerful woman and very Knowledgeable. Also would answer all of your questions about the Security industry and was very helpful and also on time. I would recommend Karen for tutoring if your Financial industry and yes I would keep on hiring her until you are ready to take the test. Thank you so much Karen for the help today and I hope you have a great day.

SAM, 2 lessons with Karen
Tutor responded:

Thank you for sharing your experience. I want all students to be successful.

My practice test scores improved after our first session.

Karen has been amazing from the first interaction. She helped me identify my problem areas and designed tutoring sessions to address my weaknesses while building on my strengths. The way she blends visuals and practical examples really helped me grasp concepts that have plagued my test scores. I'm pushed and challenged in every session. The result - I'm feeling more confident tackling questions on bonds, cost basis, and taxation. Karen is the real deal!

Jonathan, 9 lessons with Karen
Tutor responded:

Thank you for those kind words. I enjoy tutoring and I want students to be successful in passing their exams and in their careers. I wish you all the best.

Really great session

She broke down complex topics for a novice, and I walked away with confidence. She gave me good direction for studying away from the lesson. Looking forward to the next session.
