I am Here to Help
You can be a Big Four, a first-time writer, in industry, unemployed, or a repeat writer. I have helped Canadian CPA students through the CFE (formerly UFE) process since 2009. My ability to teach case writing and debriefing skills, together with my flexible and fun learning environment, have helped students from a variety of backgrounds make it through the CFE process successfully.
Are you frustrated that you can't get past RC? Not seeing the case issues? Upset with your results are trending, and don't know what to do? For the past decade, I have helped review practice cases and provide feedback on them. I will assess your solution and comment on ways you can acquire the breadth and depth necessary to achieve competency.
You don't have to go through this alone! I am available for a phone call, Skype meeting, video conference, or an in-person meeting for Toronto writers.
I am here to help you with whatever is on your mind. I can assist with debriefing, case writing skills, your plan of attack until the CFE or provide support if you just need someone who has been through the process before to help you through the stress of it all.

I was working in industry with no audit background, I received little guidance about how to pass the UFE. Luckily, Steven was there to guide me and truly tutor me on how to devise a proper answer to these cases. His heart is in the right place, and he really cared about ensuring I passed.

Thank you for the helpful pointers on the case writing. It did bring a focused improvement towards my CFE writing.

Coming from a mid-sized firm, there were few to no resources available to me for CFE marking, general advice, or the other necessary support one would find in a larger firm. Therefore, it was absolutely necessary to have someone act as my mentor and coach. This time in one’s career can be very stressful, but Steve provided emotional and practical support in dealing with that stress. Although Steve's marking/notes were tough, they helped me understand what the CFE graders look for and how to write concisely and efficiently to hit all the requirements. I recommend Steve highly as your CFE coach, as he is certainly “H/C - highly competent,” in my book!

I recommend Steven 100% to anyone who is looking for an amazing mentor. His case marking was the very best!!! He wrote so many comments and explained what I needed to do to get a C on Accounting and Assurance after failing the exam the previous year because of it.

I was surprised that someone who is so funny and fun to talk with also managed to be a first-class case marker. This was my second time doing so, as I had used other graders over the previous two years. He catches all the little things and does a wonderful job explaining what steps need to be taken to reach a competency. If you are reading this, believe me when I say that Steven is a fantastic investment in your future.

As a multiple time repeat writer, I did not want to risk a third fail and a friend who used him told me what a great job Steven did for him. What a great decision it was to hire him!!!! He was worth every penny when I saw my name on the pass list!

You were an absolute miracle worker, SC. I felt hopeless, as I had little free time being a future mom, planning a wedding, and working part time. Steven was beyond accommodating and made a study schedule that was perfect for me. Every week that we worked together, I continued to grow and felt really confident and prepared. What I noticed was that my confidence was so great that I was prepared to face whatever was on that exam.

Steven is a tough marker, but truthfully it benefitted me. He gave me a lot of perspectives on how much work I still needed to do. Without his feedback, I would have marked myself as a “C” when it was really a “NC.” Steven has my full support if anyone wants to hire him.
