What students say

"I really enjoyed working with Charlene throughout this course, I am very happy to have had her as my Mentor. She was always willing to help in anyway, easy to talk too, very knowledgeable about the course subject manner and presented me with a fresh, fun look at design. She was always upbeat with a great attitude and is a great motivator. Her suggestions through the critique of my work helped me tremendously and I feel I learned a lot from her. Thank you all so much for putting this all together, I had a great time and look forward to learning much more :-) Kind Regards, Stephanie Robinson"

"Charlene's been great. She gave me useful and actionable feedback when I needed it, and she pointed me to a bunch of resources when I asked. I came to this class with a project in mind and she adjusted her advice to make sens to me in that context. I highly recommend her."
