Financial Literacy Course Description
Right now everywhere you look whether it's Tik Tok and YouTube videos, investment sites on tv, or professional athletes, it seems like everyone has a thought about financial literacy. But what exactly is financial literacy, and why is it actually important besides some celebrities talking about financial literacy?
At the most basic level financial literacy is knowing how to manage your money for paying rent and bills, buying groceries, and saving for the future.
Well at Tutor Doctor we feel it is not just important but imperative for an individual to not only understand how to maximize their earnings but also avoid the pitfalls of consumer debt to help transform their lives. And Tutor Doctor is all about changing the trajectory of each student’s life so we created a 5-day course to educate students beginning at 14 years old to help them not just understand but also effectively use their financial skills in personal financing, budgeting, and investing to maximize their income.
Our financial education course teaches students how to make wise financial decisions to promote financial well-being over their lifetime. The interactive lessons will translate complex financial concepts and help students develop actionable strategies for managing their finances. Students will understand the different ways to acquire income, develop a savings and investing plan, create a budget, track expenses, make informed purchases, monitor and protect their money, and navigate financial institutions and financial products.
All of this to transform and change the trajectory of each student’s life.
