Should I become a student?

Kiss Kiss
Hello!

I would like to become a better reviewer, so I thought it would be nice to join the mentor program as a student.
I just have a couple of questions

I am sure that the mentors are busy, busy people...just like I am...so I hope that if I cannot get a review in ASAP, that it won't be a problem for the mentor.

Also, from what I understand, once I have written a review, I send it to the MENTOR?
I just want to make sure I am getting this right!

I am wanting to join!
I just need a little more info!
THANKS!!

Speaking for myself, I have students take MONTHS to get a review back to me. There's no time limit on classes, but it is nice for you to check in once a week or so to let them know you're still alive, but just haven't had time yet to get it to them. I personally have a policy to always get a review back to someone within 24 hours unless something big happens, but some mentors take weeks. It just depends on the people involved!

The process goes like this:

You write a draft and send it to the mentor>> The mentor makes a list of the information you didn't include/that was incorrect and sends it back to you>> repeat as needed to get all information in there>> When satisfactory to both parties, the mentor edits it for grammatical errors and makes it go live

You have to do at least two reviews in a class to graduate and become an advanced reviewer. While some students will be ready to graduate after 2 or 3 reviews, some will want/need to stay on for more. It's between you and your mentor!

It's also useful to find a mentor who is similar to you. I mainly do toy, sensual beauty, and lingerie reviews, so I'm not as useful at mentoring students big into BDSM as some other people on the site may be.

I have personally taken class 2 times. I plan to get another mentor to better my reviews further. A lot of the time mentors understand that you can't devote yourself to review writing 24/7. If it takes you a couple weeks to get a review in then that's ok. Just make sure you tell any mentor's you are requesting ahead of time that you won't be a super quick worker. Some prefer to have very prompt reviews in. I think that most are okay with taking a little while as long as you check in with them, just as Ryuson has suggested.

Definitely. There are so many things to do here at EF, it can be overwhelming for a newbie to navigate it all. I am still discovering new things all the time. A mentor can help you get a jump start to better reviews/ranking.
