Question for the mentors - how "active" are you?

Question for the mentors - how "active" are you?

ScottA ScottA
I have had several students sign up to be mentees and then things have gotten really quiet. I know that at one point anyway work/school issues were coming up, but I haven't heard much since then (it's been a couple of months). How active are the other mentors in going after their mentees? I don't want to be obnoxious, but I also don't want them to think nobody cares.

Pretty quiet for me, I only have one student at this time. No worries yet.

If I haven't heard in a week and I haven't had any message about why they would be quiet for a while (school/work/family) then I send a message asking them if everything's going well and yadda yadda. If it's been about a week after that and I've still heard nothing I send another message asking if they still want to be part of the class. After that I lay off and if another few weeks go by and nothing I send one last email, after that I'll cancel the class if I haven't heard anything within say a week of the last email.

If they're having things going on that I know about but they haven't said a date when they'll be back I usually give it 3 weeks or so, if I haven't heard I send an email checking in. After a few months I'd say they probably forgot about EF, maybe are no longer interested..but maybe an email checking in will remind them or jump start their interest.

I do send an email after two weeks. Then, if no response in two weeks, I cancel the class.

I haven't had this issue yet, but as soon as I get a student I make sure to send a message out explaining what I'm here for, and all of mine have been very active and very responsive. Not sure, but like Sir said, I'd just send an email after 2 weeks of nothing.

This thread is what I do now- I simply send them a message first thing explaining my expectations for the class.

Then, if after two weeks, I hear nothing, I cancel the class. I feel that two weeks is more than enough time to be able to check Eden and at least have the courtesy to reply. I understand people are busy, I am too. Hell I am a single mom in college, I know what busy is!

But I also think it would be best to get an email at first as well, because if you contact them through email then they REALLY have no reason to not respond, because who doesn't check their email at least once or twice a week by now?

Also, if they are serious enough to join the mentor program they will hopefully be checking back as much as they can.

And lastly, as long as I know what is going on I won't cancel them. But if I hear nothing, they go bye bye. I want my spots to be open for serious students.

This too. If there's no answer in two weeks, I'll send a message. If no answer then, I cancel the class.

Agreeeeed!

I'm a very active, very involved mentor with all my students. Yeah it gets tough sometimes keeping up, but I'm so excited about helping them and wanting to make sure they never feel abandoned, confused, or that Eden is less than professional.

If I don't hear from them within a week, they get a message on EF. If another couple days go by, they get an email. Both friendly reminders and asking how they've been, etc. If another week after the email goes by, they get a more serious email about how I understand life happens and things could be crazy for them and they could take a hiatus from the class if necessary. And then if I don't get a response from that one within a week, I drop the class. But I make sure to inform them that they're welcome to contact me anytime and restart the class if everything calms down.

I looove my students.

So how many people wind up dropping students? Is it common or rare?

I've dropped a few, and I'm sad that I might have to drop a few more, but I've got so much on my plate right now, I'm not gonna start chasing people again til after the holidays.

I never sought out any students; they came to me. I've come to realize that I simply do not have the time to mentor anyone, so I am no longer active.

I have dropped 3 out of 6 or 7 I think.

I think it is going to be pretty common, since the majority of people carousing the site who are new probably have no idea where to begin. Maybe they think it is something else, and then get overwhelmed or intimidated and decide it isn't right for them?

And I love your class!!!

I simply don't understand why a student wouldn't follow through with a class.
I will admitt, it takes me about a week to get each review written and I don't have a job I actually leave the house to do so can understand it could take a little bit to get one done. But I'm also very slow at getting things done. I'm a snail
But you wouldn't think people would bother with the mentor program or even the review program if they really didn't have time to write a review within a couple of weeks!

I being a student!
