A private tutor may be exactly what you need to help you pass the Series 6 exam. A skilled Series 6 tutor can make a large impact on your mastery of the Series 6 material in a relatively short period of time. Private tutoring is most effective when preparing for the Series 6 exam under the following scenarios:
- You have prepared for the Series 6 exam by reading the textbook fully, taken a large number of Series 6 practice exams and are having trouble mastering the information, or are facing challenges applying the knowledge required by the Series 6 exam, or
- In addition to the Series 6 exam preparation detailed above you have taken the Series 6 exam and did not pass the test and you are scheduled to retake the Series 6 exam in the next few weeks, or
- You’re an industry veteran who is now being required to become registered and have a very limited amount of time to prepare for the Series 6 exam.
It Makes a Difference
Working one on one with a Series 6 tutor just prior to taking your Series 6 exam can make all the difference in the world. A Series 6 tutor will make sure you are focused, have mastered the Series 6 material, and are confident in the application of the knowledge during your Series 6 exam. For Series 6 candidates who are getting ready to take the Series 6 exam for the first time or who have taken the Series 6 exam and missed passing the exam by 1 – 12 points, 4 – 8 hours of tutoring are usually enough to ensure you pass the Series 6 exam.
Series 6 Tutoring Case Study Number 1
A recent Series 6 candidate who had been preparing for her Series 6 exam for 5 weeks kept falling short on significant issues on her Series 6 sample questions and she was not ready to pass the actual Series 6 exam. She had read two Series 6 books and was still having issues with mutual fund and annuity questions. Her most recent scores on her Series 6 practice exams were all between 65% and 70% – she was scheduled to take her Series 6 exam in two weeks.
One of our Series 6 instructors phoned her and discussed with her how she had been preparing for the Series 6 exam. This Series 6 candidate was so concerned with memorizing the math concepts that she failed to spend enough time on understanding how mutual funds and annuities work. The Series 6 tutor asked her to reread the sections in her book on mutual funds and annuities over the weekend and scheduled four one hour virtual tutoring sessions. During the first session our Series 6 tutor advised her that most Series 6 candidates only need to use a calculator on the exam for 4-5 questions. After each virtual training session the Series 6 candidate was given exams to work on and the Series 6 tutor reviewed her progress between sessions. On her last simulated Series 6 exam her results showed that she had mastered the material on the Series 6 exam. That Friday she passed her Series 6 exam.
