Mentor

Kurt Yalcin

Based in Brooklyn

I'm a UX Researcher at FutureFuel.io, a FinTech startup dedicated to crushing student debt. In the past, I was a UX Designer in publishing. I've been part of teams driven to improve the reading experience of digital news for brands such as the San Francisco Chronicle, Houston Chronicle, and the New Jersey Star-Ledger. I have an M.S. in Information Experience Design from the Pratt Institute.

What students say

"Kurt was incredibly detailed, helpful and thorough with his feedback on my assignments. His feedback would include positive reinforcement but also offer suggestions that would enable to improve and learn from those assignments. He often recommended other tools and resources that would be helpful based on his experience, too, during our calls. Would highly recommend Kurt!"

"He was fantastic!! He gave me very useful feedback, not only through our weekly calls and comments on my submissions, but through email as well. I could not have asked for a better mentor!"
