More than 700 (5 Star) ratings and I've helped more than 200 people pass their SIE (Securities Industry Essentials), Series 3, 6, 7, 63, 65, 66, 79 and other FINRA/NASAA exams.

Much of the Series 6, 7, and other FINRA exams deal with options, municipals securities, underwritings, bonds, suitability, finance, and regulations. While much of the Series 63, 65, and 66 exams deal with exemptions and exceptions. I have over 25 years of industry experience as a financial advisor, investment banke...

I?m working on becoming Series 3 certified and Kevin is a diamond in the rough when it comes to texting. He?s a very intuitive and patient guy, kind and resourceful.
- Djery C. from Pompano Beach, FL
Awesome tutor! He is definitively the guy you want in your corner. I passed my Series 66 the second time in no small part to our sessions together and his excellent teachings. Thank you, Kevin
- Nick E. from Milford, CT
I had 2 sessions with Kevin especially on OPTIONS for my series 7. Kevin walked me through the concept of options within our 1st lesson, which prior to that I spent the whole month of my time and still didn?t get the concept of it. I took my 7 and passed it yesterday and 80% of my test was on options. I highly recommend Kevin and will definitely work with Kevin again on my 66.

Very knowledgeable, he specializes in breaking down flawed student thought process. Getting down to the root of the matter! I use to struggle with suitability related questions (Series 7). I no longer feel intimated by them. Reach out to him.

Kevin is the most qualified individual I?ve ever come across when it comes to financial literacy and various securities exams. He is definitively the guy you want in your corner. I passed my Series 65 in no small part to our sessions together and his excellent teachings. Thank you, Kevin!!!
- Henry R. from San Mateo, CA
I am so thankful I came across Kevin's profile. He makes the complicated and monotonous study programs much easier to understand. He is simply a genius! I failed the Series 7 on my first attempt with a score of 61% and left feeling like I was going to lose my job. After taking 10 sessions with Kevin, I never felt more confident going into the testing center and left with a passing score. Don't waste your money with the outdated study programs, Kevin is your guy!

Kevin is helping me understand the in's and out's of the SIE and S6, he is very patient and I have more to learn. I appreciate his understanding and kindness. Thank you, Kevin.
- Sally D. from Colorado Springs, CO
Kevin is an outstanding tutor. He taught me exactly the way that I learn. He is a master in the industry and his knowledge is vast. Not only does he explain the answer to the question but he goes into detail. He has no problem giving detailed answers as to explain the subject better. I would highly recommend him if you are looking to get your securities licenses or any FINRA license. As I said before he is a master in the subjects.
- Hunter G. from Jim Thorpe, PA
Kevin?s lessons are always very informative and tailored to my learning style. He helps to reinforce the important points in every section. I have gotten confident after each lesson and will continue to use Kevin?s help in the future.
- Brad S. from Carlsbad, CA
Very productive study session. He has the knowledge to explain concepts, strategies and tactics to learn the material. He explained the importance of applying the knowledge to solve problem. Memorizing keywords and facts is not enough. Kevin has teaching talent.
- Wayne B. from Irvine, CA
Kevin did a great job explaining pretty complicated topics like options and I know already that his tutoring will be super helpful to me! I am super grateful for his help.
- Marisa O. from Santa Fe, NM
I had the privilege of working with Kevin in preparation for the Series 66. Kevin is very diligent in his preparation with his students. I felt confident during the test at whatever question was thrown my way. Kevin helped me learn the material so no matter what they specifically asked, I was ready to solve any questions. If I have any more Series test, I will be sure to contact Kevin.
- Connor F. from Denver, CO
I hired Kevin after I had failed the Series 65 twice studying on my own. I had taken thousands of practice questions already and studied for months with Kaplan. But had lost all confidence in myself and felt that I had a disconnect with how I memorized the information. Kevin has a great process where he will begin to rewire how you think about the topics and drill home the most important aspects of the information you need to pass. The first few lessons are challenging as he thoroughly tests your understanding of the topics and picks apart the areas you are weak in. But they steadily get easier as you begin to memorize and make real life connections to the material. And as a result, my confidence eventually rose to a point where I actually started to strangely enjoy studying and felt like I could take on any question given to me with confidence. Going into that final test was so much different than all the others as I knew I was prepared and ready and I couldn't have done it without him. It's an investment in yourself, and that feeling of passing made it worth every penny. Thanks again, Kevin!

I had taken the Series 66 twice before finding Kevin through Wyzant and I couldn't have been more grateful to have found a tutor not only so experienced in the industry, but also so prepared for each of our sessions. He helped me a great deal in re-learning the information and then fine tuning the material so that it actually stuck in my brain the third time around. I passed on my third attempt with a smile on my face knowing I had invested in my own success in choosing the best tutor! He challenged me with his teaching style and never made me feel bad for not remembering a concept right away. I highly recommend Kevin for anyone in need of help for the Series 66!
- Lori K. from Fort Worth, TX
Kevin was patient to help me approach series 7 Concepts from a different view that I was strugling with. He provided detail the could not be found inside any series book/program that I have used to study. I Highly recommend his Services!
- Kris K. from Cardiff By The Sea, CA
Kevin helped me pass the Series 65 exam. He is very knowledgeable and is able to put things into plain English when things seem to be unclear. I would Highly recommend!
- Nick L. from Pewaukee, WI
I am really grateful I got connected with Kevin for the Series 66 exam! He was a great help to me in my studies. He has a vast knowledge of not only the securities exams themselves and the content from an academic standpoint, but the securities industry as a whole. Referencing things in real life is helpful to get things to stick. He was able to help me separate out and fine tune a lot of the convoluted and nebulous concepts in the state and federal law, and helped me organize everything. He challenged me and let me work though things on my own and reinforced the correct train of thought, while helping me navigate out of the incorrect patterns. I got a 90% on the test, and I DO NOT consider myself a great test taker or great in the academic world. I just work hard and put the time in. I wouldn't have done it as fast, or as accurately with out Kevin's help! I would highly recommend working with him.

Mr. Sprouse is an amazing tutor. He knows the material of the Finra exams through & through. This individual knows how to help you leverage your strengths and weaknesses and he teaches you how to attack each question individually. Combined with studying effort on your own, this tutoring style is focused on playing with puzzle pieces by going through many questions and writing out brief amounts of information which helps you to remember the material over time. Personally, I was able to pass my Series 79 on the first try upon implementation of this strategy. I would definitely recommend this industry expert to anyone else needing to pass a Finra exam.
- Marc C. from Manasquan, NJ
Kevin helped me pass my Series 7 & 63. He was extremely patient and knowledgable. He is able to provide context and real world examples behind concepts or problems. He is also able to explain concepts in multiple ways and very willing to go over anything you aren?t understanding in different ways and multiple times. Kevin is focused on your deep and real understanding of the material not just answer one problem correct and move on. Kevin has great strategies, tips, and tricks to approach difficult material and concepts. He makes them less scary or intimidating and easier to find a way to work through the problem. Kevin explains material in a way that makes it flow and easier to digest than a textbook. Kevin has a lot of great study material and problem questions to solidify your understanding. I would have not chosen anyone except Kevin to set me on a great course for success for the series 7 & 63. Thank you so so so much KEVIN!!!!!!!!! (:
- Caitlin C. from Scottsdale, AZ
I had the great fortune of connecting with Kevin early on in my studying for the Series 7. We had a great relationship and in addition to his teaching I also felt like I had him as a coach. He was there to support me with the ups and downs of the study process. Options was tough for me initially but Kevin broke it down and we tackled many varied subjects. I learned different techniques and easy memory cues that definitely helped in test day. I really feel that Kevin was my secret weapon in helping me successfully pass this exam. He?s so calm and thorough. I am going to schedule sessions for the Series 66 as well. Thank you so much, Kevin!
