Virtual Mentoring Program
Provide Encouragement - Perhaps one of the most important objectives of a mentor is to provide the student with a great deal of encouragement and motivational support. Mentors must demonstrate that they are a caring adult interested in seeing the student succeed. Consistently providing students with this type of encouragement each and every session is critical. Checking in on a regular basis will also help improve student accountability.
Solve Problems - Through conversation with the student, are there any problems or obstacles that are preventing the student from completing their academic work online? Connectivity or device issues? Issues with CANVAS? Problems with communication? What problems can we help solve for the student?
