“Jeff is the best instructor I've had in my life, including college and professional environments. Jeff has superior knowledge, experience, skill and wisdom. He knows our trading platform better than anyone with whom I've been associated, including my instructor for Platform Immersion. Jeff immediately answers questions and is not content until he is assured that the student understands the answer. Jeff visualizes that each class will be great and that his students will be successful. He encouraged his class to do the same and told us we will manifest what we focus on. He was right - his was my best week of trading ever. Jeff is an extraordinary person, well beyond his extraordinary instructor's talents.”

“Jeff Manson is genuinely concerned with his students' success and pushes his students to excel every day. He covered all of the core course material that I did not quite grasp or remember the first time taking the Futures class and added a few more short-term trading strategies for us to test and possibly incorporate into our own Trade Plan for the future. Thank you Jeff.”
