Hi there. We’re sorry to hear you had a difficult time setting up your environment; it can definitely be a very frustrating process, but a crucial step nonetheless.

We recently made a number of significant changes to ensure the consistent quality across our roster of mentors. We are very sorry that you did not receive the high caliber of mentorship that we expect for all of our students.

We’d love for you to email us at help@bloc.io and detail the inconsistencies you came across during your time at Bloc. Your feedback is valuable and helps us better our program and curricula. We look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Chris. We’re sorry to hear you didn’t find your Bloc experience to meet your expectations. We pride ourselves in bringing in best-in-class mentors to guide our students through the curriculum. In fact, a few of our our alumni have had such great success and outcomes after Bloc that they’ve later become mentors for us in addition to holding developer roles.

Our mentors average 9 years of experience in the field they teach. Some students find that mentors who are earlier in their career can offer more empathy to beginners, but if the experience is important to you, you can choose from mentors who have over 20 years of development experience from companies like Apple, Google, Microsoft and more.

If you’d like to provide us with more feedback about your experience, please feel free to email us at help@bloc.io. We would love to hear from you.

Hi there. We’re sorry you’re disappointed with your experience with our Rails Web Development Course.

Our mentors are a huge support for our students, but we intentionally build our programs to encourage independence and decrease dependency on the mentor. Why do we do this? Learning to program is extremely difficult, and allowing students to work through solutions on their own allows for more effective learning and helps them better understand complex problems. When students get stuck, mentors are always there to help, but it should not be the mentor’s responsibility to solve every problem for the student, but rather point them toward to the solution.

We’d like to hear your feedback and more about your experience. Please email us at help@bloc.io; we’ll get back to you right away. We look forward to chatting.
