What students say

"Courtney was so great to work with! See was very flexible with our sessions and always gave great feedback. Her feedback pushed me to improve my designs and question my design decisions. She also gave great advice about design careers and what to look for in the future."

- Aaron Worrell, Design 101

"Very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I only had 2 sessions with her, as a project came up at work. I would have liked to have been able to extend the time during which I could work with her, since I was unable to finish the course in the 4 weeks alotted. "

- Jori Raymond, UX Research & Strategy

"Courtney offered helpful feedback and resources. Rather than giving me a simple solution, she provided me with the tools to work through problems and use my own judgment. She also commented on my progress during the class, so it was nice to know that she noticed my development from project to project."

- Maia Herring, Design 101

"Courtney was super helpful - asking questions in a way that would make me think further in my work and providing additional resources to help me get familiar with the different processes learned in the course. "

- Sahita Pierre-Antoine, Design 101
