Mentor Testimonial: Amanda Trevino

1. What do you most enjoy about being a mentor?

I think what I love most about mentoring is the relationship building and bonding. I feel that the girls I mentor have built a lot of trust in me, which makes my responsibility as a mentor much easier to help guide them in the right direction.

2. What kind of impact have you seen in your students and/or in yourself?

I can definitely see an attitude shift in one of my students. Her grades have gotten better as well! As far as myself, my patience for kids has grown. I’m learning how to communicate a lot better too. One thing I’ve struggled with in the past is commitment, but I am now committed to my students — they can’t get rid of me now!

3. What would you say to someone who’s on the fence about whether they want to be a mentor at TRM or not?

I would definitely recommend reading Mentor: The Kid & The CEO by Tom Pace. It’ll really open their eyes to the significance of mentoring and the difference they could potentially make in someone’s life who NEEDS it! Their coaching, teaching, and guiding will only deepen their OWN learning.

Make it your OWN Experience: Tutor/Mentor, Daniel’s Story

FullSizeRender
Daniel has been volunteering at TRM since April 2014, beginning first as an Online Math Tutor. As an electrical engineer, STEM concepts and exposing students to the field of engineering are important to him.
That’s why he decided to create a 12-week engineering curriculum for his three mentees, which includes having each student develop either an application that can be available for the Apple and/or Google markets or an object of their choice.
Daniel also teaches them about non-disclosure agreements and other intricate details about a career in engineering that can only come from someone with an intimate and passionate knowledge of the subject.
While mentors are only required to meet with their mentees for one hour two times per month, Daniel meets with his 9th graders every week for 2-3 hours per session.
When asked why he supports TRM, Daniel said:
“I’M TRYING TO BE THE PERSON THAT I NEEDED WHEN I WAS 14 YEARS OLD.”
Who did YOU need at 14?
Can you be that person for someone else?
