The Mentor Model of Teaching and Learning Data Science

A Quick Update

Although it’s been two months since my last post, I promise it’s due to busyness and and not laziness. For the past three years I’ve been working as a data science mentor for Springboard, an online bootcamp for software engineers, data roles, and digital designers that gives students a self-paced curriculum and pairs them with mentors in industry. I’ve deepened my relationship with the company by investing in their Series B round in July 2020, and wrote this recent Medium post with my reasoning, as well as designing and giving a regular lecture for their Data Science Career Track Plus offering.

If you’re interested in learning more about my excitement for self-paced + mentor learning in general—and data science in particular, I’d encourage you to read the Medium post I wrote, and if you’re interested in taking any Springboard course, or becoming a mentor or lecturer, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jarus [dot] singh [at] gmail [dot] com or a DM on Twitter. My referral can save you up to $1,000 on a course or speed up the application process for a mentor or instructor role. Feel free to also get in touch if you’re interested in chatting about different teaching models or angel investing as well!
