We encourage students and mentors to keep honest and open conversations when they work together. To establish a strong bond and working relationship, this is quite important. Keep an open mind when communicating with your student. Be sure to ask for any personal and professional needs from your student and see if you could adjust your approach or reach a middle-ground.
If you feel like you have exhausted all options, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org with the student name and the scenarios that have lead you to this conclusion, we will help you problem-solve.
