What Students Are Saying
“I thought the instructor was very knowledgeable and made the class interesting and informative.”
William (Geoff) Sarm,
“Steve did an excellent job teaching this course in a clear, understandable way. I feel so much more prepared to successfully trade futures than I did prior to this course!”
“When a concept was unclear, Steve did an excellent job in explaining. His knowledge is very evident in his teaching and he has a great sense of humor. When he set curve and supply and demand zones, he explained why he chose those areas, my eyes were able to identify why he did so. I attended an XLT on Tuesday, my learning was increased as he went through all the steps of core; it reinforcing what I was learning.”
Eligio J Duran Jr,
“It's all about the Teacher. Will take more classes with Steve Bobbitt.”
“Mr. Bobbitt is just the best. He takes his time to make sure you are able to understand. The one on one time he gave to us was extra helpful.”
“Steve does a great job of breaking down complex concepts in a fun and comprehensive way. Make sure to ask questions, because Steve will sit with you and help you understand the sections that don't make sense.”
