Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is This Course Simple Enough for Me?

    The material in this course was created for adults but has been written so that anyone 13 or older can understand it. Here's a funny story about how this course was developed. We offer a course to teen investors called the TeenVestor Stock Certification Course. To our surprise, some adults were taking that course because of how well we explained stock investing ideas. We decided to use the material in the teen course but to tailor it to adults while keeping the simplicity we aimed to achieve.

  • How Much Time Will It Take To Complete The Course?

    It will take approximately 6-8 hours to complete the course. Some Modules will only take 10-20 minutes, while others may take 30-60 minutes. However, each Module is broken up into chunks to be more manageable and can be digested at the pace each student is comfortable with. In addition, some items are optional. Finally, learners can access the course for up to 1 year so they can take their time to complete it if they so desire.

  • Does the Course Require Any Prior Knowledge of Investing Concepts?

    This course is for absolute beginners. There are no prerequisites and we assume no prior knowledge about stock investing,

  • What Type of Guarantee Do You Have on the Course?

    If you are not satisfied with the course, you can get a full refund within 60 days of the purchase – No Questions Asked. If you feel like it, please tell us why you were not happy with the course so that we can improve it for other learners.

  • How Long I Have Access to the Course?

    Each learner has full access to the course for a 1-year period so he or she can return time and time again to benefit from the improvements we will make to the course over that period.

  • Will I Pay More If Your Price Goes Up?

    If you have already paid for a course and then we increase the course price, we will not charge you any additional fee for taking the course or for accessing the course over a 1-year period.

  • Do You Give Any Discounts?

    For the free limited time offer, no discount is necessary. The regular price at $197 (USD) is already significantly discounted for the beta launch. However, If three or more people in the same household will be investing in the course, please get in touch with us at: contact@teenvestor.com.

  • Is The Course Live?

    The course does not have live instructors at this time. It consists of text, videos, and quizzes that are designed to teach the very basics of stock investing.

Hands on stock investing training

Great engaging lessons, videos, and quizzes to make sure you are on the right path.

Another great thing about the Stock Beginners Course is that you have access to our virtual stock trading platform. You can use it to virtually buy and sell stocks traded on the stock exchanges with fake dollars.

Time To Complete The Course

It will take you approximately 6-8 hours to complete the course. Some Modules will only take 10-20 minutes, while others may take 30-60 minutes.

However, each Module is broken up into chunks you can easily manage and digest at your own pace.

Keep in mind that you also have full 1-year access to the course so you can return time and time again to benefit from the improvements we've made.

What Money Magazine, Wall Street Journal, Investors Business Daily, Barron's, and Morningstar Said About TeenVestor

“Teenvestor ® was written especially for teenagers, although it's actually a good basic resource for any age....I like this latest book because it encourages parents to come along for the ride and learn about investing, too. It has good, solid (not dumbed down) explanations of investment basics, how to read income statement, understand markets, and so on...”

Money Magazine

“(TeenVestor.com) provides in-depth information about investing, starting your own business, the stock market and the economy. Geared for 12- to 18-year-olds, it explains financial concepts in a detailed but easy-to-understand way. There is an entrepreneur section, as well as links to 40 other teen financial sites.”

Wall Street Journal

“The adage about giving a man a fish vs. teaching him to catch his own also applies to your teenagers. Give them money and they'll come back for more. But give them the basics of investing and they'll have the tools to make money on their own. "If you can start motivating interest in the stock market at a young age, you can develop good saving habits in your teenager, said Emmanuel Modu, author of Teenvestor ® : The Practical Investment Guide for Teens and Their Parents.”

Investor's Business Daily

“TeenVestor is another excellent resource for learning not only the basics of investing in stocks, mutual funds, and IRAs, but also the workings of the economy.”

Barron's

“In-depth and sophisticated...[TeenVestor] doesn't assume its readers have had prior exposure to investing or easy access to money... Teens and parents will appreciate the detailed treatment of investing strategies.”

Morningstar

What Investopedia, Junior Achievement, and School Library Journal Said About TeenVestor

“As both the CEO of Investopedia and the father of a teenage son, I thoroughly recommend this book to both teenagers and their parents. The state of financial education in the U.S. is woeful. Schools are failing and it is up to our teenagers and parents to enable their kids to become Teenvestors. The authors’ use of worksheets, real-life examples and easy-to-use format help readers gain more knowledge than after their first finance class in college, but in a much easier learning format... Despite having an MBA in Finance from Wharton, I was able to gleam more than a few take-aways. As both an investor and the parent of investors, it is a must read”

David Siegel

CEO, Investopedia (Now CEO of Meetup)

“TeenVestor serves as a great introduction to investing and the fundamentals of financial markets for teens… One of the greatest aspects of TeenVestor is that Modu has written the book in a tone that teens can relate to. He has taken a wide array of financial concepts and presented them in such a way that today’s teen can easily appreciate. Modu uses examples that are simple to understand and gives practical advice that any “Teenvestor” can start applying right away.”

Jack E. Kosakowski

President & CEO, Junior Achievement USA

“...This comprehensive tutorial opens with a discussion of the importance of learning how to manage and invest money and offers both advice and strategies. The authors explain the basics of investing, and then describe how to read and interpret balance sheets and income statements, how to understand the stock market, and how to evaluate and choose stocks for the long-term strategies they recommend. They also cover mutual funds, explain the various ways to purchase stocks, and describe income-tax implications for this audience... Its strong message that readers need to take charge of their own financial futures and the practical advice it offers to help them do so will ensure an audience for it. ”
