Live Mentoring

One-On-One Mentoring to Enhance Your Business


What exactly is mentoring?

Mentoring is one-on-one instruction and interaction focused on the topic(s) you feel you need help with. While textbooks are excellent with information, sometimes a live person explaining the topic along with added examples and personal experiences can be beneficial.

How exactly does the mentoring work?

You first decide the area of mentoring desired - Personal Chef Service, Dinner Parties or Commercial Kitchen Operations. Next, contact the United States Personal Chef Association (USPCA) ( and submit your request. The USPCA will locate a qualified mentor for your particular needs and address all of your concerns.

Who needs mentoring?

This is an individual choice. Nothing quite compares to one-on-one human interaction where you ask questions and get immediate, qualified answers with reasoning and examples, from successful experts who have exceled in this same area already.

Who are the mentors?

The USPCA has thousands of members coast-to-coast. Many of these individuals are true experts in their field, and have the unique ability to teach equally as well. The mentor will be a highly skilled successful person in the area you need assistance (Personal Cheffing, Dinner Parties, Teaching, Commercial Kitchens and more).

Will there be assignments?

This is completely between you and your mentor. You may have an
assignment due prior to your next scheduled mentoring session. If assigned, you will submit your results directly to the mentor before your next session.

When does mentoring start, and how long does it last?

You and your mentor will jointly arrive at a schedule that works for you both. Typically, one or two 1 hour sessions are conducted each week. Typically you will be involved with a 4 hour mentoring block, but this is up to you to decide.

How much does mentoring cost?

Mentors typically charge $50-$70 an hour, and a typical mentoring cycle may take 4 hours, however can be shorter if your needs are small and focused. A mentoring fee is a small price to pay in order to get your business up and running correctly, quickly and efficiently.

Can mentoring be conducted in Spanish?

While some mentors may be fluent in Spanish, English is the default language. But ask, because you never know.
