What students say
"Insightful, caring, funny, relatable, genuine, and incredibly smart.
Tony is a person who met me where I was at. He asked me what my goals were and kept checking in on me. He always asked about how I was doing and always made time to hear my challenges and wins.
Tony was a voice of reason when I was overthinking or overwhelmed. His perspective grounded me when I needed re-direction or encouragement. Tony had a well-balanced approach to guidance in pinpointing areas of growth/focus and allowing me to find my own answers. This helped create my personal/professional growth and self-trust in my own decisions.
Besides giving great, professional, and purposeful feedback, Tony was an approachable person to talk to. Many times, mentors or bosses will keep a power difference between them and their mentees/workers, but I didn't feel any of this with Tony which I really appreciated. His genuine personality made me feel safe to connect with him. I felt like he cared about me and my growth. He voiced his insight in a kind and gentle manner. He is a great human being and I am so grateful I was paired with him.
*You're awesome, Tony! Thank you for everything!*"
