What students say

"The best."

- Ruth R, Design 101

"Overall great mentor. Not only does he help with the design lab coursework but also puts in the time to help me to design questions outside of the course."

- Clara L, Design 101 v1

"Andrew was an amazing mentor during the my Design 101 course. He gave me a lot of feedback on all my projects and he answered my career related questions. One of the challenges I thought I would face taking an online course was hands-on teaching. However, Andrew was able to share his screen with me when I needed help or send me detailed instructions that were easy to follow. I really enjoyed the course."

- Jenann P, Design 101 v1

"Andrew was an excellent mentor. He gave very good feedback and pointed me to numerous resources to supplement my learning. Our weekly meetings were great; I enjoyed them immensely."

- Eric S, Design 101 v1

"I really enjoyed working with Andrew. He was very encouraging, offered timely and detailed feedback and insightful suggestions. Thank you Andrew!"
