What Mark’s Students are Saying

Mark has been a great mentor. He grades fairly and gives very good notes back to his students each week. The Q&As are great as he always has something to share with us and is always able to take questions.

I rated Mark a 5/5 star mentor because he is really awesome!!! He is always giving us the opportunity to ask questions and when all the questions are done, he gives us a rockin’ demo. I can’t really ask for anything more than that!!

Mark is always willing to share his knowledge with us. I appreciate that he takes time during our Q&As to demo concepts that we are struggling with. Also, he spends a good amount of time on our eCrits, which is awesome because we are always looking for as much feedback as possible.
