Mentoring is a power free partnership between two individuals who desire mutual growth. One of the individuals usually has greater skills, experience and wisdom. The term “mentoring” is being used more widely now in our society and people are often encouraged to seek out a mentor. Mentor provides knowledge, experience or is simply a good listener. Mentors help the students to perform to the best of their capabilities. Their styles range from that of persistent encourager who helps one to build self-confidence, to that of a stern taskmaster who teaches to appreciate excellence in performance. Whatever may be their style, they care about the one and what he/she is trying to do. They help someone to learn, sort out a problem or devise a plan.
