"Jake is a great mentor. He adapted to my need from session 1. He's always giving me feedback and reviewing my code. He also replies within a short amount of time, although the time zone difference is big. I highly recommend him as a mentor."

"I just wanted to say a little about Jake for those that might be looking for a mentor. Jake is a very talented senior dev who can break down complex problems and explain them. As a mentor, he has guided me in preparing for a web development career. We sat down and created a plan, then had weekly discussions on the completion of that plan. Whenever I have issues, he is just an instant message away with an explanation that makes sense. I highly recommend Jake to anyone looking to further their career!"
