I am looking for a freelancer with extremely strong research and writing skills to survey the research literature on mentorship and summarize it in a five-page, single-spaced memo. The topic is a broad one, so let me clarify my specific purpose. I am developing a mentoring program that involves pairing high school students (age 14-18) with undergraduate students (18-24) for advice and personal guidance. And I am looking for findings in the research literature that can help me design a curriculum. This is an open-ended assignment, and may take quite a few hours to do properly. What matters is that I need a comprehensive, highly detailed, and well-written final product. In particular, I want the memo to have sections dedicated to answering each of the following questions: 1. What efforts have been made to study mentorship in education? ⁃ Are there any patterns in these studies? 2. What have been the major findings? 3. How have these findings been discussed in the American press? Give examples. I’m particularly interested in misrepresentations over-simplifications. 4. Are there different “kinds” of mentorship? Tell me more about these categories 5. *** According to the existing research, what makes an effective mentor? *** 6. What programs or companies exist for mentoring ambitious high school students? I am interested in particular in the United States and China. A brief summary for each, plus a link, should be sufficient Specifically: 1. Start with Google Scholar and Google Books. Academic articles about education and psychology are the best. Next best are newspapers and well-known magazines such as the New York Times, The Atlantic, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, etc. No blogs or non-legitimate sources like About.com. 2. I’m particularly interested in formal research studies with specific, measurable findings. The more data, the better 3. I am interested in both the content you find, and your thoughts on that content. If you notice anything interesting—for example, that most of the studies were conducted in the 1990s, or that they only study mentorship in the workplace—voice your own opinion, in italics. 4. Cite your sources with footnotes and hyperlinks. I don’t care what style you use, as long as it’s consistent 5. Bullet points and fine. Copy-paste big quotes—as long as they are concise. 6. In short: Format it however you want. If the content is of high quality, I will be happy
