Becoming a mentor - who all wants to?

Who hear is wanting to move up to being a mentor? Curious why you want to and the benefits you think you would bring to your reviewers. How many don't want to mentor? please let me know why you don't want to be a mentor. I am a little stuck in the middle seems like a hard job on here but it has only been 3 to 4 months on Eden for me and still learning think reading from others will help me a lot.

I want to be a mentor because it really helps other contributors improve themselves. I've had 2 mentors so far that were fantastic! I imagine it can be difficult but extremely beneficial to the community. I have some time to wait because it requires a rank of 6 or higher. I plan to get another mentor once I get to a rank of 6.

Asking your mentor questions about it will really help you decide! I'm sure there will be other mentors stopping by to share their thoughts with you

Good luck!

I haven't been a mentor for very long, but it's something I'm glad you're considering first, rather than jumping right in.

I think anyone CAN be a mentor and do a mediocre job which doesn't require much effort. Doing a good job, connecting with your students, and finding ways to help your students learn and progress does take more work. What you put into it, is what your students are going to take from it.

The whole point is to help newer members understand what's needed for the most useful reviews, and to help those who've been doing it for a while, to brush up on their skills. If you're not taking all things into consideration and you're just editing the reviews for your students, they aren't going to learn anything and will go on with writing reviews that could easily be improved.

Everyone teaches differently, but we all have the choice as to how much effort we want to put into teaching others. Putting in the effort and seeing your students go on to write awesome reviews without your help, is extremely rewarding! It's WORTH the effort!

I love being able to help others to do their best. I want to see everyone here doing a great job and if I'm able to help in some way, that's what I want to do! I truly don't believe that the program is for everyone and if you're not able to or aren't willing to put the effort into your students, than it's not a wise choice. If you want to do it, don't do it for points, do it because you have a desire to help!

I can't wait to become a mentor. First of all, I love teaching. Second of all, how fun is it to teach how to review sex toys? Also, what a great way to meet new members.

I don't want to be a mentor. I appreciate all the work the mentors do and I do believe they all help the community here at Eden. I just don't think I'd be a very good teacher. I've had bad teachers in life and it's really frustrating, so I'd rather not put someone through that.

I'd like to help others learn not only about writing outstanding reviews, but to teach each student what they need to write those reviews as well as being an all around contributor - offering their own unique contributions to EF.
