Frequently Asked Questions

 

The number of hours, from 2 on up, and where to spend them depends on your specific goals and the span of exam topics you need to cover.

Many Exam Success students use tutoring as a study supplement and they generally have a sense of what their strengths and weaknesses are and want to drill down on specific topics, concepts or questions they find challenging. With the focused attention tutoring delivers, they are able to get over the passing score.

The decision as to how many tutoring hours to take ultimately will come down to your specific situation and needs — there is no set tutoring syllabus.

If you think you might be interested in many hours of tutoring, it is suggested you start with one or two initial sessions to ensure that your coaching sessions are adequately useful.

You can work with Prof. Gordon (one of world’s best tutors for the CFA, CFP, CIM, CSC Program exams) no matter where you live thanks to online conferencing technology.

Exam Success’ live online tutoring provides a real-time, interactive experience, and is available to anyone with an internet connection from the comfort of any place at a time that is convenient for you (tutoring times are subject to availability). We use the Zoom platform to ensure you receive the best possible instruction in a highly engaging digital environment.

Exam Success is a leader in the Financial Services exam preparation industry and we feel we offer extremly high-quality preparation. That said, we also recognize that tutoring can be a big investment and student success and satisfaction are our top priorities. That’s why we offer the opportunity for your to get to know Prof. Gordon and his teaching style before you decide to book tutoring sessions.

Get a sneak peak of a tutoring session by watching the demo video of Prof. Gordon breaking down how the tutoring sessions works, or meet him live, face-to-face for a pre-tutoring session consulation to discuss your needs and expectations. Both options are free and a great way to get a walkthrough before you decide.

Booking is easy and fast (< 2 minutes):

1. Select the Free Consultation (15 minutes) or Paid Tutoring (min 2 hours) option.
