"Inspirational and Friendly Math, Science, and English Tutor"
As a tutor, our job is normally secondary to the teacher's. The teacher's job is to cover a certain amount of material in a given amount of time, making sure all students do their best. The tutor's job is to go over this material with usually just one student and further elaborate on this material.

I passed my very first time for the series 7 and series 66. Ken was huge help to fill in those missing key points. Ken had me review the material before taking any sort of practice exam. Reading was the key and understanding it. Any material i didn't understand Ken was able to answer right away and explain it in the most simplest was possible.
If anyone needs help passing the 7 or 63 or 65 or 66 this first time i would recommend Ken.
