"John is an excellent teacher. He makes these concepts very clear and understandable - I'm using it as a side resource for a finance course I'm currently taking. His explanations are more straightforward and helpful than my MBA professors' (my prof is also good for the record, but comparatively speaking John is easier to learn from). Many finance explanations are unnecessarily complex, but John has the gift of cutting out the fluff and making it simple. He cares about the topic and is excited to help us by giving us this knowledge. Couldn't be happier with the course. Thanks, John!"
