I truly enjoy the mentor program. However, I have run into a situation and it may cause me to leave the program.
I have ran into a student who is very happy with their review. However, it is lacking information. I send suggestions and they do not take my advice. I totally understand that everyone's writing style is different and their review should reflect their thoughts and feelings and not mine.
unfortantly, due to them not taking my advice, I am receiving many poor ratings for my editing job. This is very frustrating. I work hard on editing and helping others with their reviews. I spend a lot of time trying to help new comers. To be quite honest, it is time consuming and I often sacrifice my own reviews that need to be done to work on my student's reviews.
I have no idea how to address this type of issue. To be honest, I am considering leaving the mentor program due to this situation.
Has anyone else ran into this? How do you handle it? Any tips or hints of what I can do to make these type of situations better?
Am I correct in thinking that voting for the editor is suppose to be rating their ability to fix grammar errors regardless of the lack of useful information? I feel that it is unfair to expect a mentor to rewrite their review and add things that are needed. I think that is the job of the student. If we give hints and tips then the student does not accept it, is that really my fault?
Honestly, I want to leave the program now. I have worked very hard on my rank and if students not taking advice is risking my rank, I don't want to continue.
thank you so much for any advice.
