I have tutored dozens of students in SAT math, ACT math, Economics and high school math with excellent results. Additionally, I have also helped candidates working on their GMAT, MBA in Finance, Series 7, and Series 66 exams. One on One tutoring has always proven to be the most effective teaching method. I believe that everyone has the capability to learn. The secret sauce is the right approach and it takes a sensitive teacher to find the correct recipe that works. The proper approach depends...
Jamie went over basics of options and really broke them down to me. I had memorized a lot but didn?t actually comprehend the concepts. He showed me them in a way that I understood.

I was impressed that Jamie had a "lesson" planed for our meeting, he was interested in what my goals were and fashioned a lesson plan accordingly. He also gives homework to ensure that the student integrates the material.

He is teaching me how to identify important information and how to respond to difficult questions. Lots of things to learn about. He'll get me there. There is a lot of information to understand.
- Francis M. from New York, NY
Jaime was by far the best tutor I had! He didn?t waste any of my time with random conversation or talking at me about how much he can do for me, Or anything unnecessary. He broke things down in an amazingly concise way and helped me break down the areas as that I was struggling with. Use him!!!!!! He will help you pass!

I really wanted to pass the Series 7 and I freaked out when the test date got closer. It felt like so much information in my head that I became overwhelmed. What happened with Jamie is that he explained stuff in the Series 7 in layman's terms and it stuck in my head in a sense that it didn't feel like it was overcrowded . When we went over test questions and I couldn't understand the wording of the question he was able to help me see it a certain way. This helped my confidence level knowing I could provide the best answer to each question. You may know the information in the Series 7 but the questions on the test can throw you off. Jamie understands what the Series 7 contains and he will have you understand it way quicker than you going over it again and again and again. Thank you again Jamie.

Jamie is able to narrow down what?s important to the exam I am taking. Took the time to make sure I understand the material.
- Mark R. from Brick, NJ
Jamie is very helpful and knowledgeable! He is a huge help in understanding material and explaining concepts. I was skeptical of online tutoring but the experience was great and so glad I tried it.
- Susan S. from Colonia, NJ
Mr. B. explains things clearly, makes sure that I understand what we are doing before moving on and leaves me with materials I can use to further my own self-study. I could not be happier with his help.
- J S. from Germantown, MD
Jamie is super knowledgeable, any question I had he was able to zoom out and vaguely explain an overview before zooming back in and dissecting specific concepts or definitions.
- Matt M. from Lynbrook, NY
My son was studying for the series 7 exam, a requirement for his new job right out of college. He was self studying after working 12 hour days--a difficult combination. I did some research online and found Jamie, contacted him and he called me right back. After that, it was really just about the two of them working together and creating their own schedule. My son told me that Jamie is very patient, really knows his stuff, is available, answers all his questions and offered many tools for him to use while actually taking the test. He passed the first part of the series 7, and will be working with Jamie to get through the second and final part of the test. I highly recommend Jamie.
- Shelly C. from Tarrytown, NY
Jamie was a PHENOMENAL tutor & resource for helping me prepare for my Series 6 Exam. He was just what I needed to help me pull the concepts together before testing. I contacted him initially 6 months pre Exam but as life goes, I didn?t actually engage him until a couple of weeks before. He uses a very practical approach and just help makes the concepts more understandable. He is VERY patient and also affirmed me and helped me believe I could be successful! I asked a lot of questions because I wanted to make sure the concepts were understood and they didn?t shake him one bit. He also gave awesome standardized test taking tips as well. Another impressive point is we did all of this virtually. I passed my Series 6 the first attempt and I couldn?t be happier! Now I?m on to S63 and you bet I will be calling Jamie and so should you if you are looking for an Awesome tutor!

I can't say enough about Jamie B. and his expertise as a tutor. Jamie helped me tremendously to get through an MBA level finance course, and I am so grateful to him for that support. He is professional, knowledgeable, and patient ? there is little that he does not have a background in with regard to that subject, which made me feel so confident throughout this process ? and is a mentor as well as a tutor. I would highly encourage anyone who is considering engaging a tutor to work with Jamie ? he is excellent.
- Irene M. from Roseland, NJ
Jamie was vital to my success on the S66 test. He has a great ability to simplify topics and condense complex subject matter into bite size pieces. He's an excellent communicator, a consummate professional -- and he's a very 'real' guy-- he's easy to talk too. If you are "stuck" or worried about a topic for an upcoming test, I would recommend Jamie without reservation. Thanks, Coach!!
- Jeff R. from Holmdel, NJ
Jamie B. made such an impact on my study regimen. He taught me how to study smarter. He taught me how to study with more focus. Jamie gave me a level of accountability I did not have before. Working with Jamie is the reason I finally passed my 65 exam. He did more for me than just tutor me five times. He kept me accountable in-between lessons and didn?t let me put slack in the rope. No way I would have passed that exam without him!!!
- Rebecca K. from Simpsonville, SC
Jamie is an excellent tutor for the Series 7 examination. He quickly assessed my S7 ability and immediately helped with my weaknesses, while maintaining consistency and focus on my strengths. He continues to guide me to the path of success.
- George C. from Beverly Hills, CA
I passed my series 7 (on the first go) only because of Jamie. Don't get it wrong, you'll have to do your part (hard work) but Jamie stops you from spinning your wheels and sets you on the path towards passing. Honestly I didn't believe I would be able to do it, I hadn't taken an exam in ten years, but every week working with Jamie I felt more and more secure. Jamie is calming and through- once he gets to know your leaning style he breaks down the lesson, tailoring it to you. Throw any question at him, as many times as needed, and it is answered patiently. Think Margin and Options are Hell? So did I until Jamie explained them in a way I could wrap my head around. He's taught so many students that he now has his own way of explaining the tricky parts. I spent a month studying alone and tried out two other tutors before finding Jamie- if I could do it all over again I would have begun with Jamie from the onset. I recommended him to my firm and am now recommending him to you. Good Luck!

I fell upon Jamie in series 65 distress, lost in information to which I was not retaining. As Jamie puts it, "I hit a road block." I won't disclose Jamie's techniques, but I will say trust him. Jamie will build your confidence, he will hone in on where you are failing and expose it. Then teach you "magical" techniques to understand and retain the information. Jamie loves his statistics when it comes to how students learn, and he will help. Do what he says and the stressful series exams will even start to seem...easy. Are you hopeless? Have you worked with other tutors without success? Do you want to pass your exam? Work with Jamie and he will teach you specifics and generalities priceless to studying complex information and you will perform. Thank you, Jamie.

Jamie helped me with Variable Annuities and Margin accounts for the Series 7. He also went through the questions with me together for a better understanding and the reason behind the answers.
- Jenifer W. from Albuquerque, NM
Today was our first session but Jamie obviously knew the material well and was patient with me. He provided structure with an assignment and I'm feeling positive that I can do this.
- Adrienne S. from Bridgewater, NJ
I came to Jamie with a rather large request when it came to the series 7. I only had two and a half weeks. Jamie said it would be a very hard task but not impossible. He worked with me on areas he knew were crucial for the exam and helped guide me on what/how to study outside of our sessions. His knowledge of the exam helped me be successful on the first try.
