What makes you a good mentor?

I have cherished the experience I had as an undergraduate at Carleton. The profs and TAs were always highly competent and keenly interested in helping a struggling student. I sincerely wish to extend the assistance for which I benefitted in order to help students who may be discerning their next steps in academia or the world of business or government. I believe that my experiences both in teaching in the schools, colleges and at Carleton as well as my work in government and private industry have prepared me for adult mentoring.
