It's hard at times when the student gives you a list of items they're interested in reviewing 1 of, and then admin emails you with "all those have 3 + reviews or are out of stock", so I have to message students to pick another handful of items to get 1 approved. Most of the time, it's not a big deal but sometimes it gets frustrating.
I love being a mentor, and have helped a good 15 students with writing anywhere from 2 - 15 reviews before graduating them, depending on their preference, my time availability, as well as if they need to work on their writing skills more, or are ready to soar on their own with reviews.
I get a lot of thank you's for helping students, before they graduate. It's nice helping others as well as knowing you're appreciated for your hard work with helping critique reviews, and guide them on their reviewing journey here on Eden.
