Thank you for your review, Paul. We're glad you enjoyed our curriculum and found our instructor to be knowledgeable and supportive. We regret to hear your time with your initial TAs did not meet your expectations due to staff changes. We do monitor instructional team performance through weekly feedback surveys and classroom assessments, and we are glad that you found the newer TAs to be more helpful.

While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we empower them with the resources and support they need to prepare them for the workforce and the job search. Our team strives to be clear about the scope of our career services from the beginning so that students understand how they can maximize this aspect of the program. Our career services curriculum includes 1:1 coaching with a Career Director, technical interview preparation, portfolio assistance, resume support, a project demo day, and more. We do take student feedback like yours seriously, and continuously work to provide students with the support they need to be successful.

Group projects are intended to simulate experiences that students may encounter within a team of web developers in the real world. We strive to recreate a collaborative atmosphere found in many professional web development positions and recognize not every individual effectively learns in this manner. Unfortunately, in any workplace, you may not always be grouped with like-minded individuals and we regret you had a sub-par experience with your teammate. We take any reports of abuse or mistreatment most seriously, and it is never our intention to make students feel as though they should remain in a situation they are not comfortable with. We were happy to address all your concerns and believed, based on our previous conversations, we had provided the necessary support and assistance you requested, moving forward with a tailored study plan to best fit your needs.

It is our goal for all students to successfully learn the material in our curriculum and leave the program feeling confident in their skills. I have attempted to check in, but have not been able to reach you. I would love the opportunity to hear from you personally and see what we can do to provide any and all additional support you might need at this time, making sure you are able to successfully finish out the program. Please contact me directly at (919) 425-0055 so we can further discuss your concerns.
