I currently write exam questions for Wiley's efficient Learning. I am obsessed with teaching students exam techniques and how to actually pass the exam. This is a rewarding role, which has allowed me to help dozens of people pass their exams.

I have previously passed 5 license exams: the Series 7, 63, 65, 86 & 87. I hold the Chartered Alternative Investment (CAIA) and Financial Risk Management (FRM) designations and I am a level 3 CFA candidate. I'm a former trader, analyst, invest...
Reviews
I just passed the series 66 on my first try and my review with Sebastian definitely helped me. Not only did Sebastian help me learn the concepts, he helped me so much with test taking strategy. I did a lesson with him before my series 7 as well and he helped a lot. While knowing the content is essential to passing any exam, test taking strategy is equally as important. Sebastian's ability to explain what to look for in questions is unmatched. He helps you understand what questions are actually asking, what to avoid, and many other tricks to help you pass and save you time when taking the exams. I highly recommend Sebastian for anyone who is serious about passing. Thank you Sebastian!

Sebastian has what it takes to teach you how to tackle SIE questions. He helped me focus on aspects that most people oversee on the exam and those small things can make you or break you. He is smart, determined and passionate about teaching the approach to the SIE questions. Great teacher!

just passed the 65 this am. SEbastian was really great with advice on how to attack the test and what areas to focus on. He is great on Bonds and Options as he can walk you through the math and make it simple.

I was struggling with NPV and IRR, Sebastian illustrated these concepts in a way that made perfect sense. There were at least 3 questions on the exam that dealt with this topic and I felt confident in my answers By the way, I passed! Thank you, Sebastian!

Simply put, he is the best tutor I have ever encountered. He takes his time to explain every single concept you ask him and is an extremely nice guy! Certainly recommend!

Sebastian provides a great level of experience as well as personal stories to help simplify the material. My first time taking the test, I was not confident in my abilities because I did not understand the concepts as much as I would have liked. Sebastian helps build that confidence. Excellent tutor with Muni and Options. Sebastian really cares whether or not you pass your exam. If you are looking for someone who is compassionate and is willing to put in an equal amount of effort into your preparation of your studies, then he will help you get there. Thank You Sebastian!

Sebastian really takes the time to help you understand each topic. He is so intelligent and helped me understand topics on such a deep level, making me feel confident in my abilities. I am feeling more optimistic already for my upcoming exam. I highly recommend!!

After my first session with Sebastian, I knew I had found the right tutor. Sebastian was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the series 7 and the material that would show up on actual exam. He took his time to pick apart each subject that I struggled with and made sure by the end of each session that I had the material needed to answer each question with ease. Sebastian did not hesitate to go above and beyond to make sure I had the information and confidence needed to pass the series 7. He gave me equation to use on the test and also taught me how to pick apart each question to get past the trickiness of the test writers. Im very glad that I found Sebastian and I couldn't have done it without him!

Sebastian laid out the foundations and fundamentals very well to help me get off to studying on the right foot. He clarified some of the more confusing items and put them in simplistic and understandable terms for me
- Cory S. from Wayne, PA
Had my first meeting with Sebastian and already looking forward to my next meeting. He is very concerned on how you are understanding the material. extremely personable and nice. Can't wait till my next class with him - we reviewed options for my series exam and he explained it in the most simple terms!
- Gigi M. from Asbury Park, NJ
Sebastian was great! Did not waste any time getting into the needy griddy of things, which was awesome. Really takes time to make sure you understand the information he is conveying to you.
- Logan B. from Columbia, MD
Sebastian is sharp, knowledgeable and provides insight about concepts on the exams that helps you see them from a totally different, more concise perspective. He is certainly passionate about what he does and was better for me than any other tutor for my Series 7 and 66. I passed both exams thanks to course materials, supplemented with convenient classes with Sebastian that drilled in what I was confused about. If you have trouble with options, bonds, sharpe ratio or anything involving formulas, Sebastian is especially useful and a one hour session will take that worry off of your plate. Study hard and make sure you go with him!
- Craig S. from Mahopac, NY
I've been working with Sebastian for some time now, he's been building my knowledge in the financial sector (specifically the stock market). I couldn't be more grateful for his patience and detailed explanations. I would highly recommend connecting with Sebastian to anyone looking to gain confidence dealing with investments, or the financial industry as a whole. His down to earth demeanor and friendly disposition allows for a comfortable setting while expanding on new areas of knowledge.
- David R. from Carrollton, TX
Having trouble understanding certain topics? Have you failed your exam and not sure what steps to take next? Want some test-taking tricks? Sebastian is your guy. He?s not like a finance professor you might?ve had, who just throws things up on the board and expects you to understand. Everything that was said was important and easy to understand. Will definitely reach out again for his help.
- Jae C. from Falls Church, VA
I cannot say enough about Sebastian! I met with him one time and going to several more times. I am postponing my exam because of the confidence he has given me. Made the information understandable and made me feel confident as ever. He is an absolute joy and so beyond intelligent. I am really looking forward to speaking with him soon.
- Monica M. from Harrison, NY

Worked to develop a good understanding of where I was coming from as a student. Demonstrated industry experience and a breadth of knowledge while being able to explain things simply and in detail. Would definitely use and recommend again.
