guidance relationship in which a more experienced or more knowledgeable person helps to guide a less experienced or less knowledgeable person
(Redirected from Mentor)

Mentorship is when a person who is more experienced in a subject tutors another person to help them learn more about the subject.[1] It is the process of guiding and influencing a personal and professional growth in an organization. [2] Mentorship requires the mentor to have more experience in the subject they're tutoring in than the person teaching, also called a mentee. Mentorship is complete when the mentee has the same level of knowledge about the subject as the mentor.
