The best part of working on this project with my mentor was being able to learn so much new knowledge on my project. At the middle of the Telementor project, I thought I was lacking facts and I told my mentor and she had so much information for me to use. This really helped me throughout the project because I knew if I was stuck, she could help me.
I would have to say the best part of working with my mentor was almost all of it. The fact that I was able to speak to someone all the way in Italy to get help on my interests is amazing.
The best part was definitely having a mentor that worked with just me. That was the best part because, we worked on a project that I cared about.
The best part of working on this project with my mentor is he could help me and simplify things so that they make sense. I also like that you could exchange ideas in what you could do to make things more professional and look better.

What advice would you give your mentor as he or she works with a new student?
I would really like a mentor in science because I love science but I would also get feed back from a science expert.
I would want to do this in geography because it would be fun and you would have to involve something in the past of today
I would like to have this project in science because I think it would help me to learn what we are doing in science better than I do now.
When I couldn't find Todd's email I would have liked it if she would have helped me look through different websites and look because they were blocked at school.
I would like to recive help from a mentor in pretty much every big presentation where I need to do alot of research because I am not the best at finding websites or books that help me with my research.
Another subject area I would like to do would be in Geography, I think with history it would be a perfect topic.
I think that it might be fun to do telementor in geography because of the wide range of cultures you might encounter doing research about different countries.
I would like this project next year in geography because I think the ability to collaborate with someone that knows much about a region or geographic concept is a big advantage and would work well in learning about the eastern hemisphere.
I would like to receive help for a mentor in English. I think it would be interesting to learn more about rules and words people use, and how they are wrong or right.
In Science I might like to have a mentor and work on a big long project like this one.
Another academic area I would like to receive help from a mentor is Geography.
I would want to do the this again next year in my 7th grade English class.
I think an academic area I could use help from my mentor is how to solve problems.
I would probably like to do the telementor program in English class next year
Probably English, but I don't think I would like to do is in something like science.
I would like to receive help in science and geography.
In another academic area where I would like a mentor to work with would be on a big science project. I think that having topics on like weathering, erosion, volcanoes and other scientific topics, would be fun to work on with a mentor.
During the telementor project not only did I learn more about my topic but I also learned skills that are hard to learn. There aren't many skills I need help on now.
I would like to receive this opportunity in math so I will become stronger in math.
I would like to receive help from a mentor in science or maybe geography. This would help us in science so when you are doing a project you can get another person thinking to see if it is good.
I would have liked to revieve more help on finding links and websites because I had a tough time finding sources.
I cannot think of any right now.
I would like to work with/get help from a mentor on human's mood changes.
I would want to do this project again in science because I've always liked science and this project will help me understand it and get more interested in the topic.
I would really like it if we could do this project again in English. I would also like to try it in Geography and Science.
I would like to receive help from a mentor in science and English again, this would be a fun project to do in these subjects because I had fun doing this in English and I love science and it would be fun to do a project on a science topic.
I don't think I would like to do this in an academic areas again.
I would love to receive help from a mentor in math. Math can be really hard sometimes, and it would be great to have a mentor to guide you along and challenge you.
How comfortable were you communicating with your mentor about your project?
I have no advice for my mentor because she did so well.
She helped me by giving me some sites and taking my survey and giving me info. So I can finish my project and present it to my teacher so my mentor gave me info by helping me find it and do a survey.
Don't change anything and try to show them sites and share information.
The advice I would give is to help them when they need it most!
I would give my mentor advice to help with the research and finding websites.
The one thing I would advice Bev would be is to give the student more advice, because of what she said to be I was able to add a lot more with her feedback.
AS Dave works with another student I would give him the advice to communicate more often and try to ask more questions to challenge the student.
Continue to do exactly what you did. Start off with an idea of how to work, and when you start to know what they want from you, alter it accordingly.
Keep being awesome! I thought Jenny was a marvelous person and she made things really clear. Some advice: Give suggestions. I feel that a lot of this was very independent (which is a good thing) but I would have liked a bit more guidance in what to do next.
I would not give her any advice. She did great!
Some advice I would give my mentor is to be truthful about their presentation or their work.
Some advice I would give my mentor is too get too know the person that you are mentoring more at the beginning
I would tell her That You should work with the student on problem solving.
Probably just to try to be more like a friend than a teacher because some kids will then start to listen to you more because i know some kids that dont listen to more like the teacher part like super strict or like mean. So just try to bond with the student.
I don't have any advice for my mentor. He did a great job and I will always remember doing the Telementor program.
They should ask questions and make sure that the student is keeping up.
one thing that I would suggest my mentor to do with a new student is to have a lot of patience. Working on one of these projects isn't the easiest thing to do and some students might not be the best at communicating so often with someone over email.
My mentor was very open and made me feel free to be open. Normally I am very shy but this new experience really helped.
I would inform her on her advice isn't always on time when I need it.
I would say not to judge them as much in spelling just let them no nicely.
I would first tell my mentor to get to know the student and to find what he/she likes.
I would keep motivating them and work with them every step of the way.
I would just tell her to keep being awesome! Like, as a listener and communicator. She does amazing!
I would give to always ask what's up or what they are doing to get to know them in ways that connect to the project. This will make them get use to you and be comfortable to you.
Some advice is that sometimes students cant always reply that fast, maybe because they were really busy and also that sometimes it can get a little frustrating.
To be just the way you are when you were my mentor and just help out a little with the project and give advice.
The advice I would give my mentor when she is working with the new student is to put in more websites and to make sure that they will open at school so they can work with that website.
I would give my mentor advice to really challenge the student, to make them think. Ask hard questions, and stuff like that.

The most difficult part was definitely when I was getting my presentation ready.
Learning how to ask for help from my mentor because i wouldn't be done if i never would of asked. I also know how to have fun and
Trying to find information and making sure it is correct and then incorporating it into my project.
Getting emails and more Rock stars! I think that this was the hardest because I could have used maybe a little bit more help then I got.
The most difficult parts of working on this project with my mentor was finding websites and books to get research from. It was also hard for me at the beginning of this project to share my ideas with my mentor through email because I don't have much experiance in online communication. Now though, I am better at communicating and sharing ideas online.
the most difficult part of working on this project with my mentor was the adrenalin racing through me waiting for a response.
The hardest part of this project was maintaining a steady contact schedule and making sure I contacted Dave often.
The most difficult part was either finding my topic or finding my experts. This was difficult because you had to search and use parts of the internet that I haven't used before. I have also used websites I haven't used before.
The most difficult part was figuring out how to put together my project and how I should make the most out of my research.
The most difficult part was figuring out was I was going to do and how I was going to do it. I was sure I wanted to do Greek Mythology, but I wasn't sure which way I wanted to go with it.
The most difficult part was when there was a weather problem and your mentor couldn't communicate.
The most difficult thing about working on my project with my mentor was finding experts and contacting them.
The most difficult part in my project anilizing all of the data from all of the different websites I found
The most difficult part was communication because It is a new person and you don't know them and you will never see them face to face.
Mostly just figuring out what to do next because it was easy figuring out facts it was hard to figure out what to do next.
The most difficult part about working with a mentor is being afraid to let your mentor down when you don't email back right away.
Making the final project was the hardest part for me. I wish we had a little more time to do that.
One of the most difficult parts of working on this project with my mentor was trying to make what you were saying in your head, into an email. It is kind of hard because I know what I want to say in my head but when you put it into an email, it doesn't sound the way I want it to.
I would have to say the hardest part of this is finding your experts and contacting them indirectly.
The most difficult part was working on all of the docs we used and communicating back and forth the project.
The most difficult part while working with my mentor was remembering to work on my project and not procrastinating. another difficult part was communicating with my mentor.
I think the most difficult part of this project was finding experts. I only got one response and total, I only had 3 experts since most of them didn't speak english.
When I started in the telementor program I got exited and nervous at the same time.
The most difficult parts of working on this project with my mentor was to figure out where to start on the project.
Tell my mentor what I'm doing and having him check it and revise it. The computer problems and trying to tell my mentor what is going on.
The most difficult part was when I was working on my project and I didn't really know what to do next. When my mentor didn't respond for a couple of days, and I had asked help about the problem, I got a little frustrated and a little scared that she wouldn't reply and/or answer my question and i would be stuck for the rest of the project.
The most difficult parts in this project was finding experts because I only got one that responded and it was hard to find them.
Like in number 8, I was having a hard time with time and having enough to write an email with.
The most difficult part was finding my audience.

I think that the project tracker was an amazing help, though it takes some time to access when you are in the send veiw page, where I was most of the time.
nope, you didn't miss something. no additional comments
I think that the telementor program is a great program already.
The Telementor Program is one of the most substantial programs that I have used. I am very grateful for this opportunity because I know that at my old school I wouldn't have been able to accomplish any of this.
No. The experience was amazing and I think that this would work well for 95% of the people that take it.
It was brilliant. Fantastic. I would absolutely do it again sometime.
I think that my mentor Saman was amazing and really helpful. She was the best mentor ever!
I dont have any! :)
I don't think there was anything wrong or weird with the program. It really helps you be able to accept that it's okay to ask questions and it's okay if you don't know something.
I think that you got everything needed in this project
The whole project is a great thing and I hope other kids get to experience this.
My mentor was awesome and I would love to do this again
I don't think you missed anything, everything is great and working with this program was a great opertunity
Personally, I think that this project should've been shorter than a semester, I think I should've been maybe one or two months shorter. That is my only concern and also that is why I gave a 2 for my overall experience for this project.
I did not see anything that you missed.
No. I have no additional comments about this program.
I would just want to say thank you to the people who have help me in the is project and this telementor program.
I really enjoyed researching about something that I love and incorporating that into a really big school project.
I liked this project a lot and I had a great mentor to help me with my project and give great advice. This helped me be a better learner because now I know its okay to ask for help and now I see things in a different way.
I do not think you missed anything my experience was great just badly timed.
You didn't miss anything.
