    Our Tutors Are Superhuman

    At some point in time, CFA tutoring became a product, with massive companies focused on minimal score increases. We hold ourselves to a different standard. We use personalized CFA test prep based on the needs of the individual student, not the needs of a focus group. We hire tutors who not only received top scores on the CFA levels I, II, and III but also have a passion and skill for teaching their students how to recreate this success on test day.

Our Approach
  • Step 1

    When you sign up for one of our CFA test prep packages, the first thing we'll do is get to know you through one-on-one interviews and practice problems. We'll ask about your experience with the CFA level exams, academic and work experience, concerns, and learning style so that we can match you with the perfect tutor.

  • Step 2

    Your new tutor will then begin to build a customized study plan designed to fit your goals and schedule. Specifically keeping in mind your particular academic strengths and weaknesses, they will work with you to create a study schedule to help make the most out of your study prep time. Whether you have some experience with the material already or are starting from scratch, your tutor will make sure you cover all of the necessary material so that you can walk confidently into that testing center.

  • Step 3

    We don’t just want you to memorize some facts, we want you to become comfortable with the material. The questions you’ll face on test day are designed to be confusing. By incorporating regular practice problems and practice tests into every study plan, we help you get comfortable with the question styles you will encounter on the real CFA. We’ll also work on strategies to relieve testing anxiety to help ensure that exam day is as stress-free as possible.
