When evaluating whether a mentor would be a good match for your student keep in mind that the greatest leading indicator of success is how well a mentor and their mentee get along.
Questions to ask yourself:
- Would the student find this person inspiring?
- Do they share any interests, hobbies, or lived experiences?
Watch Matthew M. break down a subject they’re passionate about.
WHY THIS MATTERS:
Our mentorship sessions happen virtually over Zoom. It’s important to get a sense of how someone’s personality can come through on a video call. The best way to ensure your student is excited about learning is to have someone on the other side that they look forward to talking to.
GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT (SO FAR)
I made a feature length movie with my friends in college, and organized the premiere at our local AMC. It took us a whole year to go from script-selection to screening, but at the end we sold out the theater, and simultaneously raised over $3000 for a local beneficiary called 826 Chicago!
