Valentin brought my Laravel skills up ANOTHER notch by showing me more sophisticated ways of doing what I was trying to achieve. Great demonstrations, great answers, great results so far on my end. I'm progressing at light speed and feel confident about it.

Valentin explained the fundamentals of Laravel in concise fashion then walked me through the process of getting started on development. I now feel like I am ready to create my web project and will continue to seek his advice as I tackle increasingly challenging problems.

I thought these words from Val deserved to be shared :). Me, after writing some bizarre/stupid code while "following" his instructions: What was I just doing?? Val: You were being creative. LOL! Well done there, Val. :p :) It's still making me laugh just remembering your response. :)

Programming languages have a lot of rules and constraints that are not obvious. I was going around in circles, wasting hours of time trying to find the info myself, but Val helped me to cut through the fog, zero in on problems, and make things crystal clear. If you find yourself spinning in circles, STOP and give this guy a try. You won't regret it -- guaranteed!

Simply WONDERFUL: Val is extremely knowledgeable, patient and explains things well (breaks things down into easily digestible chunks), and gives excellent examples! Also, I learned by accident that Valentin was an Apple Technician in a "former life", and he gave me some awesome tips & tricks on maximizing coding software for my Macbook and improving my workflow, which is going to save me tons of time in future. Moreover, Val makes coding FUN. I can't wait till our next session... this guy is AMAZING and anyone would be lucky to have him as a Code Mentor!

Over 6 hours for one session (code review, refactoring, and much laughter :)). Loved it :). Plenty more to do and looking forward to it :).

I wanted Valentin to show me how to do something that could have taken several hours, but he was honest and encouraged me to do it another (better) way, saving me money (and time and effort). Very nice! :)
