What students say

"He is great! He answers emails quickly and thoroughly, and is prepared with topics to discuss on our Skype meetings. He has also sent me several book, blog, and article recommendations based on things that we've discussed in our Skype meetings. I appreciate that he shares stories about his own work experience as well as more general "best practices" from the industry. "

- Leah Ujda, UX Research & Strategy

"I'm having a great experience with Andrew. He's supportive, informative, and knowledgeable. He's responsive over email, and in comments. He's calm and well spoken in mentor sessions. He has a good menu of outside resources, that have helped me a lot, in my journey. I appreciate his more philosophical approach to UX, over the scientific approach. "

- Joseph Guerra, UX Research & Strategy

"I enjoyed chatting on our weekly meetings, and appreciate all of the additional reading materials and websites that Andrew suggested! "
