Meet Annaline, 

Hi, I’m Annaline Dinkelmann.

Twelve years ago I left my Wall Street job and became a day trader. In January 2008, I turned my passion for the stock market and business into a successful walking tour company.

People love getting a tour guide who has a background in the finance industry. Why? Because I can successfully translate and navigate the world of finance for the layman.... breaking it down for students, their parents and teachers.

Due to Covid-19 many people stopped travelling to New York.

So, at that time, I decided to take all of my in-person classes, workshops and tours you can now gain the same financial knowledge from the comfort of your own home.

I invite you to join me live for my virtual Camps and Classes.

(And don’t worry, should you wish to visit New York in the future, you'll still be able to take one of our tours in-person.)

How I got here, 

My Wall Street Walks in-person tours take people through the heart of  New York's financial district.  People learn about how the stock market works, what role related financial institutions play and how everything comes together.

Many school groups have taken my tour.  Teachers return annually to bring new students. Kids get an opportunity to walk through history and see that the stock exchange and the stock market is real - not just a game.

I have spoken at many conferences New Jersey Educational Association (NJEA), Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), as well as hosted many educational workshops.  I was also featured by CNN International in 2015.

Why I do it, 

Many people can't afford to travel to New York. Other prefer to avoid the hassle of travelling to New York if they can learn the same information from the comfort of their home or classroom
