Mentoring Sessions

Our mentors are experts

Many studies have proven that mentorship sessions are the most efficient method to speed up learning technical skills. Research in various educational contexts consistently highlights the profound impact of mentorship. For instance, a systematic review found that mentoring significantly enhances professional identity formation by providing both emotional and instrumental support, thereby boosting confidence and self-efficacy in mentees​ (BioMed Central)​. Similarly, studies in STEM education have shown that mentored students develop a stronger scientific identity, linking them to essential career resources and research opportunities​ (SpringerOpen)​.

How many 1-on-1 mentorships do you have available?

Depending on your program, you may have mentorships ranging from 0 to unlimited. Sometimes the number of mentorships automatically resets every month, and you get more, or sometimes, they don't reset on their own, and you may have to buy more if needed.

You can find out how many mentorship sessions you have by clicking the following link, which will take you to your profile subscriptions summary.

If you don't see any box referring to the number of mentorships available, it probably means that you have unlimited, but you can always check with our support team by sending an email to support@4geeks.com or speaking with your program manager.
