Extremely patient, kind, and knowledgeable

Karen helped me study for my SIE and now currently for my Series 7. After her help I passed the SIE because she not only taught me, but she also restored my confidence. For the Series 7, I am currently still studying and will continue to use Karen for help. She is very patient and what I also love is that she smoothly transitions into different topics during the session so you don’t feel overwhelmed. I 100% recommend Karen for any help you may need.

Very knowledgeable tutor related to 63 exam/other exams and patient

Karen did a great job getting me to really focus on the techniques required to read and follow the questions with concepts to understand what's being asked. Biggest issue for me in the exam was understanding what NASAA wants from the specific question.

Bernard, 10 lessons with Karen

Federally covered IA and IAR registration

Karen has a way of breakdowning the language to relatable level. She gives examples using a common conversational manner. Found this to be very helpful. Easy to talk to and easy to listen to her experiences & knowledge of all subjects.

Truly amazing!!!!

I had a tutor before Karen that left me feeling discouraged, on my first session with Karen she was so amazing, I booked her a month in advance. Karen is patient, shows you real life examples to help you understand and never makes you feel dumb, she makes sure you truly understand everything. I can’t wait to continue my sessions with her, she is definitely worth every penny!!!

Knowledgeable and patient

Karen taught me the basics about Options in a crunch before my Series 7 exam the next day. She broke it down into simple terms with repetition to help me understand the content. Her plus and minus helped me to recall a concept I was struggling with. Thank you
