What Students Are Saying

“Scott? Are you kidding me? He was always helpful, considered my slow approach for things to sink in and dealt with it immediately with other classmates or Kim or Jeff or Steve to come in to give a hand. I wish that man all the luck in the world and hope to see him again soon!”

“Scott Maragioglio is a great instructor. He understands the market very well and can explain how core strategy is the key point in trading. He is also very patient with students that may not understand something very well, and will stop to discuss in full detail to where they fully understand. He also gives great examples when explaining things to help everyone understand.”
