"I attribute my passing score to Dr. Field's tutoring course. Dr. Field did a wonderful and effective job at teaching me how the test was constructed and how to “ play the game” in answering difficult questions. I found many of Dr. Field's visuals on PowerPoint slides to be very helpful for me in remembering concepts and theories, as I am a visual learner. The course also helped me use deductive reasoning on difficult test questions."
"I took your test prep course and it definitely made the difference. I'm happy to say that I passed the NCMHCE on my first attempt. Without the prep, I believe I would have struggled to identify the 'rules' of the test before being too far in the negative to climb out."
Do the counselor licensure exams intimidate you?
Are you unsure of how best to prepare?
As a counselor educator and private practitioner who has taken and passed both the National Counseling Examination and National Clinical Mental Health Counseling Examination within the past 10 years, I understand how graduate study and clinical experience are not necessarily relevant for passing these exams. I have helped students, new graduates, and seasoned professionals to pass the NCE and NCMHCE since 2011. My tutoring approach at the time of writing has over a 90% pass rate.
My approach is to provide detailed guidance on effective approaches to passing the exam. During tutoring sessions, we discuss the secrets of how the test is scored, and review individual question items in-depth. During our sessions, you will learn essential tips and tricks for passing the exam, such as:
- You can almost always eliminate two of the four NCE answer choices, giving you a 50% chance of selecting the correct answer
- The NCMHCE subtracts points for curiosity; test takers should stop indicating answer choices after they have selected the options they are most confident in.
Not only are my test prep services effective, they are convenient. I provide group tutoring via the Zoom online web meeting platform. My group tutoring rate is $199 for a four-week class (6 hours of total tutoring; 1.5 hours per week). This is more than 50% cheaper than the well-known corporate test prep companies. A discounted rate of $149 is available for graduate students.
Date and Time
I will be providing group tutoring courses on Fridays during Aug/Sept 2023. Each course is capped at 100 participants. The information for each course is provided below.
NCE/CPCE Test Prep (Aug/Sept 2023)
Fridays at 1:30-3:00 p.m. Pacific Time (2:30-4:00 Mountain, 3:30-5:00 Central, 4:30-6:00 Eastern)
on 08/25, 09/08, 09/15, 09/22 (skip 09/01)
Refunds will be processed 24 hours before the first training session date. Attendance and participation in my test preparation is not a guarantee of passing the exam. Refunds will not be issued based on your exam performance.
Missing a Session
Plenty of my test takers participate in some or all of test prep sessions asynchronously rather than live. I record all tutoring sessions for later viewing. I upload video recordings to an online Google Drive folder by end of day. That same Google Drive folder houses all of the test prep materials that you need to prepare for the exam. Importantly, students who participate asynchronously seem to perform just as well as students who attend live.
