Mayan is a great instructor and a great guy! He brings extensive real world experience to his lectures and provides constructive criticism to his feedback that isn’t sugar-coated (which I really appreciate). Mayan is the man!
Mayan has always been very clear explaining the exercises each week and giving feedback. It seems to me a very important point that he has used examples so that we understand him perfectly.
