Disclosure Policy


I simply cannot teach about ethics if I don’t follow the rules.

On December 2009, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) passed a rule that bloggers were required to disclose any hidden interest or unspoken biases related to posts and recommendations.

So to get everything above board and be FTC-compliant, here are a few things to remember while you click around this blog:

  • I am a freelance CIMA tutor, content material writer, and marker for various CIMA tuition providers. Which means, I get paid to quote accounting terms, give support and advice to students.
  • MJ THE TUTOR is an affiliate of Astranti Financial Training. Which means, the website and I receive a percentage of the purchase price on anything you buy through the links on this blog, including purchases you make while on above-mentioned website which I did not link directly to.
  • If I write anything glowingly extraordinaire about my places of work, you can take it that it is because I truly love my job. And that the post is an advertisement.
  • MJ THE TUTOR was not created initially for financial reasons. Its primary commitment is to guide students through common exam issues and assist learners in their exam preparation. However, we live in a commercial world. And the blog needs to earn its keep, so….
  • It is safe to assume that all the posts on this blog, especially the ones with links and/or products recommended, are financially motivated. This will be a blanket disclaimer on everything.

And now that we’ve gotten the technicalities out of the way, let’s get back to basics.
