David Fong has been trading since 2000, but didn’t come to Online Trading Academy until 2012. He describes that discovery as “a giant leap” in his knowledge and after studying several asset classes he decided to become an Online Trading Academy Instructor.

David loves giving back to the community as a volunteer, so teaching is a natural choice for him. He is always trying to learn more about a topic so that he can teach it even better and help students achieve their own financial goals.

“David was great - able to adapt his teaching pace to the class, and getting to know the students well enough to work with their individual learning styles.”

“David Fong planned his teaching strategy very well, because when we got to the end of class and reviewed the material, it had already been drilled into our brain. David asked each individually how we learn better, and he was able to accommodate us on the class and the platform. So Glad I took this class. Thanks David.”
