SIE Tutoring

As you probably know, working in the securities industry requires passing a series of qualification exams administered by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). The first such exam is the SIE (Securities Industry Essentials) exam (depending on your career path, the Series 7 exam or the Series 65 exam typically follow). Our FINRA exam tutoring approach involves upfront diagnosis of your knowledge base relative to what is tested on the, in this case SIE exam, and the development of a customized study plan that you'd work through with your SIE tutor.
