Graduating a student

Miss Nessa Miss Nessa
I just became a mentor yay! *Does a little happy dance* well, I wanted to ask. How many reviews do you normally have your students do before graduating? I've talked to some that say 3 and one who said 4-5. I don't know which is the right amount. What do you think?

Also!

If a student fails your class, can they retake it?

If a student fails your class, they can retake it with you or any other mentor. However if it reaches the point where you fail them rather than continue to work on their reviews (for whatever reason. Some students don't put in much effort) it's more likely that they'll take a class with another person. I personally base it on how well I think each student is reviewing on their own. I've had some that didn't need much help and were ready with the minimum reviews to graduate, but I've had students stay for much longer. It depends on how well you think they review and how confident they feel reviewing on their own.

There is no set number. It's however many reviews it takes for me to feel they are capable of writing a quality review on their own.

And I guess a student that failed your class could retake it, but if that's the case you probably shouldn't have failed them in the first place.

Thank you both for answering my post. I was really curious about the retaking a calss. I was also wondering, what if you work with someone. You are trying your best with them and they still are not getting it. You fail them, and they ask to retake it. Should you allow them? Or just tell them no.

I would probably tell them that I did not feel I could help them further and suggest other mentors they might consider.

I would probably do this. There's a reason that they weren't able to finish a class with me, so I'm not likely to take them back on again. If you thought that you could help them more, then failing them in the first place seems like a silly thing to have done lol. I'd go with Kindred's suggestion of suggesting other mentors that you think might be able to help them further if they're just not clicking with you.
