Hyperion’s mentor support pairs you 1:1 with an experienced mentor who assists you in learning at every step of the way and reviews your work within 24 hours.
Our mentors are Computer Science specialists who are trained to be full-time mentors to beginner/intermediate learners. They don’t just explain right from wrong; they provide personalized feedback on aspects such as improving code readability, following coding conventions, writing more efficient code, or translating structured solutions into code.
Mentor support means that any code you write gets reviewed by your mentor within 24 hours. You also get access to daily live chat and weekly video calls with your mentor to discuss any issues you’ve been facing. Our bootcamps and courses consist of several coding tasks. With each task, you iterate on the solution with your mentor until both of you are satisfied - this is what ensures that our learners complete the course with the confidence required to take on fully-fledged roles in tech and programming.
Towards the end of your course, your mentor also provides career guidance and support. This includes helping you with interview preparation, reviewing your CV and portfolio, directly referring you to our hiring partners, helping you network within the tech community, and facilitating internships at select partner organisations.
Learning to code without mentor support can be tough. We at Hyperion have partnered with educational researchers from the University of Cambridge to find the most effective way to help our students learn how to write industry-quality code faster.
Our mentors are specialists in their domain who have been trained to be full-time mentors. They are experts with the ability to form a supportive connection with students to help them learn and graduate from their courses.
All our mentors hold university degrees in Computer Science, and have decades of collective academic and professional experience at institutions such as Google, the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford, and the University of Cape Town.
Our mentors are hand-picked from among hundreds of applicants through a rigorous selection process that tests not only their technical skills but also their teaching and communication abilities. Many of our mentors have prior mentoring experience. Once selected, mentors undergo continuous professional development to ensure they remain at the cutting-edge of technical knowledge while constantly evolving as educators.
While enrolled on a bootcamp at HyperionDev and provided time remains on your bootcamp, you can switch to another course or bootcamp. This will require guidance from your mentor to ensure the decision ties in with your expectations and career goals.
Yes, you can pay now and choose to start at a later stage, however, we only allow up to 3 months at most to avoid any unforeseen complexities and to ensure consistent completion rates per cohort.
In addition to an ongoing daily mentor support, you get access to weekly 1:1 mentor sessions, either video calls over google hangouts or a phone call with a mentor. These are aimed at discussing any issues you’ve been facing and are structured around your personal needs and career goals. Your mentor will be with you every step of the way ensuring that your experience is enhanced towards your coding & future aspirations.
Once you upgrade to the full Bootcamp, you will be matched with the best suited mentor based on your current experiences, career goals and future aspirations. Hyperion mentors are full-time code educators, uniquely trained and employed to put your education and success at the centre of their careers and are available to you on a full time basis. Our mentor-student matching algorithms and criteria are carefully defined around your needs, a mentor’s domain expertise and ability to transfer & deliver the desired skill set.
Mentor sessions happen weekly as you need them. To book a session, simply log into your portal and within your dashboard, there is a mentor-booking button which you can click to select the appropriate slot based on your schedule and mentor availability. During your session, you and your mentor will discuss in depth any specific topics, concepts and challenges you may be facing regarding the bootcamp.
It is advisable that you go through the relevant notes or exercises of a particular task you and your mentor will be going through as this will allow an effective and productive discussion around any difficulties thereof. As a golden rule, please also ensure you have jotted down any specific questions/aspects you would like clarity on from your mentor :)
In cases where you are unable to make an already booked session, please ensure you inform your mentor in advance if possible and cancel the booking. If not, please drop your mentor a message as soon as you get a chance and the two of you can work on when next would be a good time for the make up session.
Yes! Simply inform your mentor at least 24hrs before the scheduled time and agree on the next available slot that suits both of you.
For sure, if your scheduled session time runs out and you still have more questions, simply check with your mentor if you can extend the session, based on the mentor’s availability you may then continue or simply set up another session for the next earliest convenience.
In order to get the best out of your session, it is recommended that you pitch up at least 5 min before your session start to ensure that you are well set up and have a stable connection so that your session can start right on time.
It is very unlikely that your mentor will be late or miss a session. Should that happen, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our customer support team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will assist urgently.
At any point in time, feel free to fill in the course feedback form as we’re always happy to hear from our students regarding their experience on the course & mentorship. This also helps us improve our service and enhance your experience to ensure that we meet your needs, so your feedback is highly valuable. Otherwise, our Customer Success team is always readily available to assist with any issues you come across during your bootcamp and you can get in touch with them at email@example.com.
