What students say

"Melissa is honestly more than I expected going into this course. She goes above and beyond the expectations I had and is using a holistic approach to help me feel confident in course and career strategies. She listens attentively and is super creative and earnest. She is not afraid to give real feedback and point out my shortcomings or blindspots when I approach an assignment, as well as giving recognition and praise where deserved. I feel like I have and am learning a lot. She is also willing to go beyond the timeline with me to help me really get the most out of the course. I feel confident she would be a great mentor to anyone who is investing in honest learning and hard work."
