Developers with a mentor are promoted five times more often than those without.

Developers like you wish they found Robert sooner

Robert is friendly, patient, and focused. Not a moment was wasted during any of our sessions and he's still available if I need to reach out to him.
If you're looking for a great mentor, Robert is a perfect fit!
As a coach and mentor, Robert is ideal. He walked me through how to properly debug my code and the thinking behind organizing the it a certain way.
In a little over a week, I went from a coder who felt like I was still a beginner (I've been developing websites for over 5 years) to feeling much more confident with my coding and debugging skills.
In the several days Robert helped me, I accomplished more with debugging my code (and the code written by other developers) than I had accomplished in the previous 2 months!
I'm confident that if I continue with the lessons from Robert, I will reach my goal of becoming a web developer.
He is very talented, not only as a developer, but as an instructor.
Robert is also extremely patient (which is great for me when I don't always understand things the first time) and encourages me to talk through my thought process to find the right answer.
I have tried many different mediums and avenues to better my development skills including tutorials, classes, and conferences, but none of them come close to the one-on-one instruction that I've gotten with Robert.
Robert was recommended to me through a work connection so I did not directly get to pick Robert, but I'm certainly glad that I was pointed in his direction.

Robert is a designer, instructor, organizer and developer. He has created and improved user interfaces, websites and applications, and brand identities for companies in financial services, retail, security and technology industries.

You might be someone who, perhaps...

Is switching careers and feels overwhelmed
Can’t afford the time, money or commitment of an 8-16 week bootcamp
Struggles focusing when watching or reading online tutorials
Develops websites as a hobby and is looking to get hired or prepare for a job interview
Designs websites and wants to feel more comfortable building them
May be comfortable modifying code samples, but is intimidated when forced to write your own

Does this story sound familiar?

I struggled to learn Front-End early on.

Little did I know, I wasn’t doing myself any favors. A few free web courses here. Skimming a few chapters in a book there. Watching. Reading. But never absorbing. The sites that encouraged or forced me to code, to struggle, that’s where I felt things starting to click. Even those, however, are one size fits all. And I wasn’t always the right size, if you will.

I eventually learned what I know on the job, through my own curiosity and by offering to help others and learn with them.

To test my knowledge and meet other fellow front-end strugglers, I joined a few meetups.

Here’s what I learned: a great teacher can make all the difference, the best lessons are small in scope and big in depth, and everything feels more natural when teacher and student are at their most comfortable: usually at their respective homes.

I know a lot now.

And I know how frustrating it is to be tossed a video, blog post, or quick answer when you would prefer someone explain how things work...so you don’t have to ask again.

I want to teach you what I know...

...in a way I know you’ll get the most value. And I want you to push me to learn more, so I can teach you more.

This isn’t learning to code The Hard Way™. It’s The Better Way, because it’s your way.

So what do you say?
