“Easy to talk to and work with. He has helped me to learn new things and upgrade my existing skills to a higher standard”

- Jaime D, UI Design

“Ruben's guidance throughout Foundations and the UX Academy really made a difference for me. What stood out for me was his passion for design and his genuine desire to see me succeed. He could empathize and understand what I needed mentally and emotionally throughout the course. At times I needed to be challenged, other times I needed some encouragement and praise - either way, I always left our calls feeling more knowledgeable, supported, and inspired. I'm grateful to have gone through this experience under his guidance. Now that I've graduated, I'm grateful to have him as a peer and a friend.”

“I would like it give massive shoutout to Ruben for his time and meaningful reviews during my course. On our mentorship sessions, additionally to the course materials feedback, we ended up discussing industry-related and design -related topics, which were very interesting and insightful. Ruben pays a lot of attention to the details, which was also very nice and helped me a lot in going my UI skill to a higher level.”

- Darby T, UX Academy

“Being a person who has been self-motivated for many years, I had doubts that I would be able to find a mentor who could push me in the ways I needed. Throughout my journey at UX Academy, Ruben exceeded all my expectations and was a game-changer. Over the five months we worked together, he helped me take my UX/UI skillset from proficient to excellent. Ruben was patient, offered clear and constructive criticism, helped me to define and communicate my design decisions clearly, and pushed me to the next level. Anyone who works with him is fortunate and will undoubtedly enjoy the warmth and vast knowledge he brings to the table. I recommend Ruben to anyone looking to become an exceptional UX/UI designer.”

I think having Ruben as a mentor is really making a difference and is helping my career development.”
