"Earl is one of the best mentors I have ever experienced: professional, enthusiastic and highly responsible. Not everyone's suggestions are worth taking, but Earl's constructive suggestions are always worth thinking about. As a junior UX designer who have just changed careers for more than a year, I am very fortunate to meet Earl at the beginning of my career. Earl really makes a good role model for juniors, no matter from professional perspective or as a person. You should not be surprised by his fast and high-quality replies. Sometimes juniors may easily feel lost, unclear about the standard of "good". Earl is like a flashing beacon light in the sea, guiding you in the right direction. There's no need to emphasize how important to find the right direction for a junior designer. In summary, Earl worths 5 star recommendations, he's greater than your imagination!"

"Leoson is an absolute legend. For months, I was stuck in Python tutorial hell, jumping from one course to another because nothing felt like a right fit and the material was all the same. But when I started working with Leoson, he created a curriculum for my needs (which was real-world applied data science). He takes the time to answer all of my questions and understands my challenges as a beginning data scientist. Having Leoson as my mentor made me fall in love with data science again. 5/5 Highly recommend."
