The Official Scratch Helper Mentoring Committee APPLICATION THREAD

Scratch Helper Mentoring Application Thread

The Scratch Mentoring Committee is dedicated to helping Scratchers. We help Scratchers by teaching them coding and tricks to navigating the Scratch Website. We show them where many tools and resources are available for them to use. We try to do 1 on 1 comprehensive instruction for coding and we try our best to answer any question tossed our way.

The Scratch Mentoring Committee is sponsored by the Scratch Helpers, the Scratch Mentors, the Scratch Welcoming Committee, and even some ST Members.

“Sounds like a great idea” scmb1*

“I think it is great that Scratchers help Scratchers - without the help being coordinated by the Scratch Team. This tells us a lot about what kind of community Scratch is, and this is what makes us special.” LiFayTheGoblin*

“Wow! Great Studio ;D” CrazyNimbus

Currently when you are applying you are applying to be a mentor, whose duty it is to seek out and work with New Scratchers. Just as a prerequisite, we ask that you have been on scratch for at least 2 months or more before applying. Also make sure to read this guide beforehand. Thanks!

Why I want to be in the scratch mentoring committee?

I am committed to helping all sorts of scratchers alike! I've worked a lot in the welcoming committee and I've helped all sorts of scratchers with my shop. I give many New Scratchers signatures and I'd like a chance to teach my knowledge to newer scratchers

What I can contribute to the Scratch Mentoring Committee?

I can contribute a new signature and a banner for the Scratch Mentoring Committee. I feel like I would be a helpful addition to the team. I am willing to teach anyone about signatures and banners!

How do my credentials show my expertise?

My shop is one of the largest banner-producing shops on scratch! Many of our customers are satisfied with the work we produce and it shows to my ability and skill with signatures

Note that it is not required to specify to a certain point. Please make sure that your responses are better then mine . Good Luck!

Maybe for a Collaboration, but I think that Siri wouldn't really belong in this type of place.

Time on Scratch: Total, about 5 months. This account, 3 weeks? (I moved accounts to work on branding.)

SDS Helper?: Nope, and don't plan to.
Scratch Helper: No.
Extra Credentials: I opened up a tutoring studio that has fallen into disuse (I plan on fixing it up at some point.) , and I own and manage the Quickfix shop. (Quickfix: https://scratch.mit.edu/discuss/topic/151016/ Tutoring: https://scratch.mit.edu/studios/1151284/ )
Other: Nothing I can think of!

Open Ended:

Why I want to be in the scratch mentoring committee? I want to be in the scratch mentoring committee because I think it will be fun, and goes along well with my dream to teach. I really enjoy helping others learn!

What I can contribute to the Scratch Mentoring Committee? A LOT. I can contribute pretty much anything you need time-wise. (Only in the afternoons or early mornings though.) I would also be willing to do any art you would need, such as thumnails or whatever. I am not allowed, however, to use cubeupload so anything I did would be in project form.

How do my credentials show my expertise? As mentioned earlier, I love to teach, as the tutoring studio shows. I am planning to do a simpler version with more one-on-one tutoring and less “classroom setting”. I guess I'm not a genius at coding but I could help any new scratcher I can think of. Yup, that's about it.

I guess I would consider myself as both a Mentor and a Finder, as I've done both.
However, my time is limited, especially during the school year…. I'll try to be active though. I might not come on the forum here much, so if something comes up that you'd like me to do, could someone drop me a line on my profile?
Thanks!

EDIT: Preferably not waffles.
