Mentoring Objectives & Scope

Every student has a different set of expectations from a mentor based on their own experiences, life circumstances and goals. I believe that the best way to mentor is to listen to the goals of the students first, have them define the core agenda for the year, and then search for the best speakers and content to help them realize those goals, while also collaboratively learning from each other too.

When and where do you hold meetings with your students?

Early evenings mid-week are best, either zoom or in-person. A mixture of in-person and virtual.

Additional Information

I have been mentoring for 5+ years and every year I have learned so much from the students. I look forward to getting to learn from and collaborate with you as well, helping you move toward achieving your life goals in the company of friends.
