What does it take to be a student?

I'm wondering about how big of a time commitment it is and what it entails.

To graduate you need to complete two reviews. The time needed depends on how long it takes to write the original draft of the review and how many edits you go through to come to a final review that you and your mentor are happy with. For me, each review takes about an hour to write up plus about an hour and a half to take all the pictures and edit them. If you don't include pictures then that cuts that part out of it. I would give yourself some wiggle room in time to write up the first few reviews to make sure you cover everything and get your writing style down. My first reviews took longer to do than they take me now.

You can do more than two reviews with a mentor if you decide you want to. This is more time, but can help improve writing skills more as well.

The process does take time, but it is well worth it!!

It also depends on how fast of a learner you are too. If you submit one review and the mentor has to go over it with you, then turn around and submit another one were the same thing happens, then the mentor will keep you since you are not ready to be on your own. Of course this is not every mentor.

Most of the time my students are done in a week. But I have had some that were around for 2 months. It will depend on you and that mentor. I know I have seen some people complain about the mentor not getting to their reviews fast enough, but you have to remember you are not the only student.

Thank you for the lovely comment on my wall!

It also depends on how many reviews you WANT to do! I have a student who may be ready to graduate, but they still want my help doing reviews! If you want to be out faster I may also recommend applying for mentors with less students.

It also depends a bit on your mentor. I know I don't get back to students as quickly as some of the other mentors to be able to tell you what you might need to change and whatnot. I've still had some students go through in just a week or so, but I've also been working with a few for almost a year, so it depends how long you want to stay in a class.

As for what the process entails, beck and stainedclear have got the basics down very well. Some mentors expect more of their students than others. Some really get into grammar and all of that where others focus mostly on content, and that can affect how long it takes to get through a class as well.

Right now I have two students and both are already advanced reviewers. I feel so honored that they want to work with me because they are so talented and write good reviews on their own. I consider my job to be one of being a second pair of eyes to look at a review - make any comments - and brainstorm for creativity if they want any help with that.

My feeling is I'm basically willing to work with them as long as they want and with as many reviews as they want because sometimes it simply helps to have a second pair of eyes.

It feels sometimes like I LIVE on Eden anyway - I don't work outside the home and I love being here and helping on the forum and helping others - so I try to get back with them within 24 hours as long as I see the notification that they've sent me something - sometimes I have problems with that.
