Wayne made the class entertaining with myriad anecdotes and was very kind to answer all of my questions in detail.”

April 2021

“Great experience and I learned more than I anticipated. Thank you Karishma!”

“I think the course overall was great. It helped me formalize and think more deeply about the work I do. Also, I was extremely impressed with Erin, specifically her ability to make complicated concepts seem very simple. She was a great instructor and it showed by how she engaged with all students (even in a virtual setting). Additionally, Erin was always willing to help students if they were falling behind. She would take additional time out of her day to explain concepts during breaks or after class ended, all while having workers come in and out of her house due to a flood. Overall great class and great instructor, i will definitely recommend this to upcoming deal professionals going forward.”

“Annie was outstanding!”

February 2021

“Great course, really liked the vlookup, index match, and pivot table explanations”

“Kristen was top notch! Friendly, clearly very smart, and explained topics well. It is super hard to teach over Zoom while people have their video off, but she totally made it work.”

“I enjoyed the small course aspect, which definitely aided in the virtual learning experience. It was very high touch.”

January 2021

“I really liked how you would always pause and check in to see if we have any questions. This ensured that we were never going through the material too quickly. Also, it was very helpful having answer keys to all of the homework assignments.”

“Materials as well as the instructors were excellent. I learned a lot.”

“Really good content that I can put to use right away that will increase productivity as well as quality of work output.”

“I had put off the class long enough and had no choice but to take it virtually. It ended up being really great and not as frustrated as I was afraid of.”

July 2020

“great format especially in covid19 times, pleased it was flexible for those following from EU.”

“The virtual learning experience was very well set-up. It’s difficult to deliver (trust me… I did edtech coverage and edtech venture capital and can attest to how crummy the virtual learning experience is) but Utkarsh pulled it off well. The trivia questions in the chat kept it engaging. I even think that for a live format like this, being able to put question in the chat whenever to be answered when there is a logical pause in instruction makes for a more seamless learning experience.”

“The delivery of the content was engaging and I appreciate the format of showing how to model different concepts, clearly showing formulas so that nobody got stuck, and then allowing time to practice. This pedagogical method was essential to building needed muscle memory.”

“Despite the constraints of an online course, the instructor explained the material with clarity, humor, and accuracy. He went at the perfect pace for both beginners and those with previous knowledge. I especially appreciated how inclusive he was in keeping everyone on track and answering questions promptly.”

June 2020

“surprisingly effective — really helped to have such an engaging instructor”

“I think it was very seamless. Way better than our college classes which were also online.”

“I liked the virtual learning experience because i) there is no need to travel to another city. ii) There is more focus being isolated without any distractions around and fully focused on the course.”

“I was a little apprehensive about spending so much on an online course, but the instructor alone made it worth the price. He covered everything in an easy-to-understand way.”

“Good. Probably better than in-class training as the jump between lecture notes & interactive modelling was seamless. Of course the interaction with other members of the class was tricky but it was managed well. This would always be an issue on any virtual platform.”

May 2020

“Don’t think anything was lost from the virtual learning (vs. in-person)”

“virtual learning went very well and the time was spent effectively and efficiently. I used my laptop to watch the sharescreen on zoom and my PC to perform on excel, which is the best setup/combination possible for virtual learning.”

“Wayne was absolutely amazing, one of the most engaging instructors I’ve had. He made things very easy to understand by providing real life examples, and he was able to answer any questions with ease. I hope that Wayne teaches more courses that I can take. I did not expect to be so engaged virtually and I was pleasantly surprised.”

“Mike was very patient with those who were new to the material, while detailed enough so others did not get distracted.There were no hiccups with the platform or materials.”

“Mike was amazing. Extremely impressive and efficient and a very good communicator. It’s amazing that we were able to cover the amount of material that we did in just three days.”

“The material was very good. I learned a lot from the course, and Rishi, the instructor, was amazing. He really enhanced the content and made the week enjoyable.”

February 2020

“This has been by far one of the best modelling courses I have ever attended. Zane’s delivery of the material was immaculate, clear and in-depth. Biggest proof is the fact that near the end of Day 2 someone tripped over my laptop cable, causing me to lose my unsaved work. I managed to redo the entire 2nd portion of the exercise without any difficulty because of the fantastic way in which Zane described each step of the model with clear explanations. 10 out of 10! Fantastic course by far.”

“Couldn’t ask for anything more. Awesome course, perfect material and fantastic instructor.”
“Marc was an exceptionally gifted teacher”

January 2020

“Parul is an excellent instructor. Very happy with the quality of the class.”

“I really appreciated the way Ed wove the repetition of concepts, definitions, and exercises into the ongoing course instruction. It was helpful for me to hear these things repeated to remind me of concepts we had learned earlier in the week and ultimately solidify my understanding. The Excel formatting exercise and review of the shortcuts / navigation were invaluable.”

“Training the Street offers such a wide variety of training courses in finance. It is beneficial for everyone, regardless of what they are hoping to learn!” 

“Ed is a legend. Really sharp and knowledgeable. Great at explaining complicated concepts.”

December 2019

“Jung Suh did an outstanding job of relating the dated course material to more current transactions – namely, the LVMT & TIF transaction.”

“Van and Annie (the TA), were fantastic. One of my biggest concerns about the class was the pace and/or getting lost and getting left behind, but that fear was quickly put to rest for a number of reasons. Van was an incredible facilitator who brought everyone along for the journey, no matter their skill level. He made the class interesting, engaging, and enjoyable. ”

“This course was incredibly helpful – parts were a refresher / solidified the bits and pieces I have learned over the years and parts explained theory I had never understood before. The format was great – interactive lecture with calculations / examples mixed in. Jung was a fabulous instructor – his humor, real-life examples and teaching style were incredibly effective for our diverse class. Thank you!”

“The instructor is willing to stay late to follow up questions. He is super kind and the contents are very helpful.”

November 2019

“Jung was an outstanding instructor. Not only did he make fairly dry topics interesting for five days in a row (not an easy feat!), but he was also able to bring to class a number of real life examples that made the coursework so much more relevant. For example, he actively reworked the coursework to help showcase the possible acquisition of Tiffany’s by LVMH (which was in the news the week of our course) and it captivated the class even more (and motivated us to read up more post-class). It was because of Jung’s talent and skills as an instructor that we are considering inviting him to teach our larger organization. We highly recommend Jung!”

“Zane is a great instructor and the course was efficient in general.”

“Mark was an excellent instructor. He was able to simplify material that is difficult to understand. He packed a lot of material into only 4 weeks. The only suggestion I’d make is that this class probably needs to be extended to 5 weeks. It felt a little rushed through the M&A & LBO models, and both topics needed 2 classes each. Other than that, I thought it was a great learning experience and I’d highly recommend a colleague and/or someone else in the industry take Mark’s class.”

October 2019

“Wayne was a great instructor and flowed through all three days of class seamlessly. He did a great job of getting us involved while also lecturing. He truly made 3 days of 9-5 accounting training engaging and interesting.”

“Great course, excellent materials and outstanding delivery from Ross. Will suggest the course to other team members at the firm.”

“Absolutely great! I loved the exercises and examples. Also, appreciated the encouragement to experiment with the shortcuts.”

“Excellent delivery and knowledge from Wayne. The fact that he is able to explain the topics in such a clear manner not only demonstrates his deep understanding of the topic but his teaching abilities. Great course!”

September 2019

“Rishi was an excellent professor. Great pace and mix of content / real life examples.”

“Karishma was an *awesome* instructor — she went through the material at an appropriate pace, had very detailed and clear explanations, and was eager to answer any questions/offer assistance throughout the week. Because of her, I would definitely recommend colleagues to take this course. I found it most helpful when she asked the class questions about the materials and had us discuss in small groups so that she wasn’t just giving answers/lecturing the whole time.”

“Instructor was awesome and the content was well structured to also cover concepts and the reasons WHY.”

“the instructor was perfect. Spot on- so well paced and informative. I learned so much”

August 2019

“The printed materials were great and Josh was a amazing teacher.”

May 2019

“I thought the course as a whole was very good. The examples, the printed materials, and instruction were all excellent. Both of the instructors I had were excellent. The course did a good job of covering a lot of material in the time allotted.”

“Excellent course – I gained a lot of value. Instruction was fluid, precise and integrated real world examples. Excellent delivery and great use of time.”

“I love Zane! He is so good with his delivery, patient and kind.”

April 2019

“My instructor Utkarsh was excellent. Knowledgeable, inclusive, patient, friendly, and very funny throughout the class helping to keep everyone engaged. Would absolutely take another course taught by him.”

 “Josh was outstanding as an instructor. Command of the material as excellent, clear and concise in his delivery – clearly emphasized key points for us to take away. Applied relevant anecdotes to emphasize / amplify various topics. Really added to the overall experience.”

March 2019

“The instructor was amazing. Really grateful for Edward Ascoli. Passionate and energetic.”

“Jeff made the content both easy to absorb and relatable. As opposed to simply reading from the course pack, he consistently coupled the material with real-world examples and applications. Overall, he just brought enthusiasm and a good attitude, his consistency in that regard was huge.

 “Good quality handbook with reusable materials (e.g. macro, short-cut key sheets). Good instructions on what makes an analyst top bucket and pointers that associates / VP would not necessarily offer naturally.”

February 2019

“I was initially unsure how quick the pace of the course would be, as we only had 2 days. However, Kristen did an excellent job teaching while keeping a moderate pace. I was extremely impressed with the complementary materials and ability to make an immediate impact on my Excel and modeling skills. Thank you!”

“Very impressed by the course, recommending to my friends & colleagues.”

“I thought the delivery and materials were great. It was the perfect length and great level of content.”
