Series 7 Tutor - Friendly, helpful and understanding!

We have been going through the study material and Karen finds a way to make all concepts relatable and easy to understand. She is so friendly and caring! I am looking forward to working with her as we continue to move forward with my study plan. She has taken the stress out of the studying plan with me and has broken down the concepts to help me regain confidence in tackling the specific subjects that I have had difficulty with thus far. I know that I will be successful with Karen’s assistance. When you are reading concepts that seem daunting, Karen goes above and beyond to make sure that all concepts are easily understood in relatable, every day terms so that these same concepts can be applied during the specific exam in question. I always feel calm and I know that I can follow her lead for the best study plan moving forward as I gear up for taking my series 7 exam.

Best Tutor for 65

Knowledgeable, Strong Industry Background, Patient and Available.

I was tasked with having to take the Series 7. Options and some of the other topics were not at top of mind. Karen was great. Quickly picked up where I needed work and really helped me get over my challenges. She is really patient and was good at slowing the pace down, if needed. DON'T mess around with other tutors. Hire Karen, she is great!
