5 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed my first mentoring session with Nikola. He listened attentively and was able to quickly understand where I needed help. On most occasions, he provided multiple solutions or suggestions to my questions, and then we discussed which one would be best for me.

Nikola was a deeply knowledgeable, patient and helpful teacher. He was able to break complex concepts down without spoon feeding the answers, and gave me the tools to help me solve my own problems. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone looking to learn more in this field.
