Mentoring Objectives & Scope

As an adjunct professor, I have a passion for helping students learn and I mentor all of them inside the classroom already, so I would hope that if they aren't already in my class, that I would be able to help them outside the classroom as well. I have been helping college students and interns for over 10 years within my current and previous roles, mentoring them and training them within my departments.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Online would be the easiest in the evenings after 5:00 PM

Additional Information

I have been an adjunct for over 13 years and working with students is something that I have always been very passionate about. I have three grown adult children that I have helped coach through college as well and know what they are going through as they navigate their classes and life at the same time.
