I'm a student mentor within university, and am a volunteer first-aider. My field of study is one where you get to interact with people all the time, and you start appreciating the underlying science of different conditions.

Tracking progress can be as regimented as the student wants it to be, or just measurable by the fact that the awkward question they...
