Brent was one of the best Instructors I ever had privilege of learning from. His teaching method is pretty smooth and easy to follow along. Even with no prior knowledge of the course material, anyone can pick up easily during the class. He even would go to individuals and explain more in 1-1 to make things clear if someone had any doubts. Overall, attending his class was fun. I would take his class any day.

Brent was the first Instructor I had in Canada at the UW Web Development program. And my first contact with coding. A nightmare. I considered dropping out during week two (didn't tell him).

Brent is a teaching machine. Willing to explain to dumb students like me -always moving slower than the rest of the class- and always timing the class from 9.00 am till 4.00 pm. Non-stop, just for lunch. Sharp.

Brent has two bonus tracks: rock-and-roll and, for me, techy wiseness. He opened a new world for me, not only by learning how the Internet works but by how to teach adult students with wide apart sets of previous knowledge and make them a powerful coding team (even with a laggard like me).

Dear Brent,

I extend my heartfelt gratitude for being an exceptional teacher. Your ability to simplify complex concepts made learning a joy. While my career path diverged into banking, the web development lessons you imparted remain invaluable. Your Photoshop class, in particular, left a lasting impact, as I continue to use those skills to edit cherished memories. Although I regret not experiencing your teaching in person, the online classes were remarkably enjoyable, thanks to your engaging screen shares and captivating visuals. Wishing you a remarkable journey ahead.



I hope this message finds you well! I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say how much I loved being in your WDD course. Not only you, but we also got to know a lot about your culture and background with your interesting stories. As a newcomer to Canada, your stories played a significant role in helping me adjust to this new environment. I am thankful for the opportunity to learn from you and appreciate the fun and effective way you conducted the classes.

Thank you so much!

Brent Scott has always been a knowledgeable, fantastic teacher. At a time when I was only partially exposed to frontend development, his manner of teaching helped me to grasp and understand the full scope of web development. I'm proud to have become a full-stack developer thanks to Brent and the courses he taught me while at University of Winnipeg.
