What students say

"Shyamala has been an amazing mentor! I really appreciate that she is always candid in her feedback and that she supplies me with her expert level advice on how to improve my designs. "

- Sarah Winslow, Design 101

"Shyamala was truly wonderful to work with. She did her best to motivate me and help me through my lessons. As a total novice with zero experience using the tools needed for completing the assignments, she tried to guide me the best she could. I highly recommend anyone out there to work with her. Best, KC"

- KC, Design 101

"Shyamala was an amazing mentor. As a UX designer, I needed someone who really knew UX already but knew design too and she was perfect. Thank you for everything! "

- Allieson Serd, Design 101

"Shyamala was very helpful and knew a lot about the design process, terminology and best practices. She was always insightful and positive"
