You know you’ve been wishing for something like this! We heard you.

You’re a good mentor, but you’ve been stressing. You’ve been wishing. You’ve been trying not to get frustrated with what might have been, what could be, if you were only a better mentor.

You worry about your kids not being ready for college. You worry that you’re not very good at making the most of great opportunities like discussions and simulations.

You’re tempted to push, assign, delegate or ignore. Sometimes you wonder if you’re really up to this! If only you knew what great mentors know!!!

Well, now you can.

Mentoring is vital for education. Good mentors lead to good education, and great mentors to great education.

This class is a practical, hands-on course on how to be a great mentor.

Veteran mentors as well as new mentors–and everyone in between–will see their mentoring significantly improve by completing this exciting class taught by Oliver DeMille.
