Machine Learning Mentor

FAQ

Q: How frequently does a typical student meet with you?

A: Different students have different needs. Some students are largely independent. These independent students prefer a week or two between lessons to focus on their reading and project work. Other students learn better with a hands-on approach and prefer to meet more often.

 

I recommend that we meet at least once a week for an hour. Meeting once a week gives you time between lessons to read and do assignments independently, while hour lessons give us enough time to review and discuss your progress, answer questions that came up during the week, learn something new, and plan the tasks for the next week.

Q: How long are lessons?

A: I offer 60 minute, 90 minute, and 2 hour lessons​. See the table below for details.

Q: What is your cancelation policy?

Q: How does online mentoring work?

A: The tools available to communicate online are impressive. I typically use Zoom for video conferencing. Online whiteboards like bitpaper.io let us type, draw notes, and share diagrams. We'll try out these tools in the free initial session to make sure you are comfortable using them.
