About the instructor

"As a retired NC Public School employee residing in Durham, NC, I mentor novice investors and option traders, providing them with the knowledge to manage their accounts without offering financial advice or product recommendations. I emphasize the importance of ensuring students have their financial foundations in order and understanding the risks involved before investing for the long term. I accommodate diverse learning preferences using various formats, including recorded courses, an ebook, 1:1 coaching, and group classes. Each lesson includes a vocabulary list and self-check questions to ensure students grasp key concepts before progressing. I aim to empower students to make informed investment decisions with confidence and clarity.​" - Patricia Saylor
