Private CFA Tutoring

As a busy professional, studying for the CFA can be daunting.  However, it can also often unlock a door to attractive new career options. A private, 1-1 CFA tutor can guide your test preparation efforts and make the process of passing the level 1, 2, and 3 exams more manageable.  As you may have heard, it can take an average of 300 hours to study for and pass the level 1 exam.  It's important to therefore be as efficient as possible in your test prep efforts.

We have CFA tutors in Chicago, New York, and Boston, and also provide online CFA tutoring (we've worked with students as far away as Paris).  

Expert Instruction

Private CFA tutoring is delivered by an expert tutor with significant relevant professional, academic, and tutoring experience. Here’s the background of one potential tutor, Doug:

  • B.S from the University of Illinois in Accounting
  • MBA from the University of Chicago
  • Certified Public Accountant
  • Chartered Financial Analyst
  • 10+ years as an executive level finance professional in a large corporation
  • Has provided private CFA tutoring to dozens of students
  • Experience with both in-person and online CFA tutoring

Customized, 1-on-1 Guidance

Your tutor will assess your starting point and help you develop a customized study plan to help you prepare for the CFA as efficiently as possible.  Here at MyGuru, our main goal is obviously for your tutor to help you master the financial, accounting, and economics content, but we also find our tutors becoming mentors and general guides as students embark upon the process of studying for the CFA.

Student Feedback

Typical hourly rates for 1-1 tutoring from an instructor like Doug at a larger national company can run well north of $150.  Our rates for a long term relationship can be less than half that. New York is the only city in which we currently offer in-person CFA tutoring. In New York, the base rate is $125 per hour, with 5, 10, or 15% discounts or investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance. That's a long term rate of $125 × 85% = $106.25.

Outside of New York, we primarily work with students via phone, email, WebEx, and Skype. For online CFA tutoring, the base rate is $99, with 5, 10, or 15% discounts for investing in 5, 10, or 15 hours in advance. That's a long term rate of $99 × 85% = $84.15.
