Paul is very knowledgeable and personable. He is also dedicated. I am impressed that he recorded a video for my session the day before his wedding”

Ryan has been amazing! He has gone above and beyond to help me understand the concepts of React. He also has helped me with some resources to understand other topics, such as Gatsby, that I was interested in when I enrolled in the course”
I talked with Ozzy several times and he always provided helpful guidance and key ideas to thing about with my assignments. Ozzy pointed out key areas to pay attention to and some common mistakes people make on projects. He made several videos that he provided to the group that helped us move forward”
Amazing mentor! I appreciate the timely support for any questions I had throughout the course. I always receive very practical recommendations. In one case he gave me a clue so I could go find the answer to my question, which really helped me develop my own problem solving skills. I really appreciate that he does not get tired from all the questions that i’m submitting 🙂 Highly recommend him!”
