It is important for a good mentor to help a student identify her individual talents and to help him identify the best growth path that can harness these talents for individual success. In order to be such a mentor, it is important to maintain an open and interactive academic atmosphere that caters to multiple dimensions on which students choose to participate. I bring this philosophy to my classes when I teach and use various techniques to not only pique interest, but also to help students best express their talent in the classroom. Every student has a mentor that they remember who changed their life in some way. Every time I enter a class to teach or when students come to me for help, I try to be that person.
