“I really enjoyed Scott M teaching the class. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very willing to explain processes in detail. He was able to keep everyone interested and navigated through the different levels of student understanding (which can be tricky when there are newbies and retakes in the same class). I'd be really interested in taking other classes where Scott is the instructor. ”

“Scott was an excellent teacher. Relatable, helpful (range of ages and computer skills in class) and he was encouraging and helpful to everyone. He sticks to learning plan for the day. Love his sense of humor and humorous analogies that help any experience level person understand. Also, he showed up in spite of hurricane.”

“Scott was amazing, loved his style, patience and way he can scale down to teach a novice. He is pretty conscious of the cycles a beginner travels as he learns to day trade. I can remember falling asleep in the last Core Strategy as I get little sleep, but he kept me interested and at the same time tied all my loose ends so I could nail the strategy and then some. I would recommend him to anyone, he was knowledgeable, funny and very relational with all his students and wanted to see all succeed.”
