"Elliot has a fantastic ability to break down concepts and help me to understand them. I improved dramatically in React/NextJS in just a couple months. He has a really wide range of knowledge and I often asked him stuff that fell outside the range of what I thought he should be expected to know and he virtually always had a good answer telling me just what I needed to know. He was really friendly and a great communicator, I enjoyed our sessions on both a personal and professional level. In the process of launching a full-stack app as a full-time solopreneur, I overestimated the amount of time I would be able to invest, but Elliot frequently reached out to check in and see if he could be of help between sessions. I look forward to reapplying and continuing the mentorship when I have more time to dedicate. Thank you Elliot!"
