"Miles is a great guy however he was never able to do anything for me personally when it came to a resume review, interview prep, portfolio creation, any industry insight, and etc. I am very disappointed due to the fact that I got no tangible results after 1 month but at the very least he is a nice guy. If you already know your weaknesses and have a plan for him, he may be able to help you. Otherwise you are on your own due to him not having any kind of plan of syllabus to help his mentees which from my perspective, kind of defeats the purpose seeing how I'm looking for someone to help guide me and fix my issues, not maybe point out one or two issues with no details and no solution."

His lessons were always well-organized and full of valuable insights, empowering me to tackle real-world projects with confidence.

He was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had, and he would frequently check in to see how I was progressing. His constructive feedback on my work helped me to refine my skills and pushed me to become a better developer. One of the aspects I appreciated the most was Dylan's emphasis on fostering a growth mindset. He encouraged me to take on challenges and learn from my mistakes, instilling in me the resilience and adaptability necessary to thrive in the ever-evolving world of front-end development.

"Prateek is the teacher/wizard I was looking for. He has deep understanding of native development and has helped me get past some really big hurdles. He typically provides detailed explanations to the bugs I've encountered in my personal project. I consider him well rounded and great to pick his brain. He does not respond as quickly on mentorcruise messaging sometimes. However, he has been incredibly generous with his time in the schedule meetings which is far more valuable! He is a man of character and his knowledge is the real deal"

- Ray about Prateek Prasad

"Malvik is great; he's communication skills are top-notch, not only when responding via chat but verbally, too he really takes his time to talk and is easy to understand. My favourite about him is his honesty and objectivity. He will tell you where his experience lies, and won't be afraid to tell you if he isn't quite as well-versed in something. Nonetheless, he will provide advice according to your circumstances and now allow his bias to dictate what is best."
