"I call him Thorough Earl! I was feeling overwhelmed about how to learn UX on my own and how to sort through all the online courses and resources. Earl helped point in the right direction and suggested a few top-tire courses/books as well as exercises he designed himself. He's incredibly organized and offered documents full of resources he collected on his own. I feel much more focused and confident after only a few meetings with Thorough Earl."

"Since 3 month I have Jatto as a mentor for Typescript. In general, for me having a mentor is the best way to learn. The progress I made is by far more, than if I had studied on my own. Jatto is great, since he takes the time it needs to solve problems in depth. He also explains the overall concept why problems occur and gives related links so one can continue to study related concepts in more depth. Jatto is happy to share his knowledge and help. Every session is great fun, as programming is taught in a way that I understand it. Hence, both thumps up for Jatto... Keep it up! "
