"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!"

"Jake is the ideal mentor. It has been a little under a month since he started mentoring me, and it has already been one of the best experiences in my life. Jake is both professional and friendly. He will guide you with patience and friendliness, which will make your experience with coding much less intimidating. My mentorship with Jake has the potential to be a life-changing experience. For the first time in many years, I finally feel I am on the right path after being stuck for too long. I couldn’t recommend Jake enough. Thanks Jake!"
