Our mentors are world-class:

A new way to share your knowledge

Your job as a mentor isn't exactly to teach (like a traditional in-person tutor). Instead, your job is to guide your students via text message. You'll connect with students looking to learn something new, and you'll help by curating the best online learning resources (online courses, videos, blog posts, etc.), designing personalized projects/assignments for your students, providing expert guidance, answering questions, keeping your students motivated and accountable, and creating structure for your students (i.e. defining goals, milestones, learning schedules, etc.).

Once accepted as a mentor, you'll receive more information on the program and training materials to help you get fully up to speed. All mentoring is done over chat within the Openmind app, so you can mentor whenever you can and from wherever you are.
