    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Fifteen of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ending on February 11. I've decided to make this round a week longer to facilitate a more in-depth learning experience. If you are a NEW PLAYER and wish to get a tutor for this round all you have to do is post your profile in the format below. Tutors will be an excellent resource for you to learn Pokemon team building and battling strategies, as well as someone who can help "initiate" you into the Smogon Community. They are here for you...so take advantage!

    Generation(s) I want to learn:

    *You don't have to be good...just willing to learn. So, don't be shy; Sign up now!

    The tutors will view this thread and choose their apprentices based on the generations they want to learn and their regular online hours. Once they have made a choice, they will contact me through a PM and I will keep an updated list of tutors and their apprentices. Tutors will also PM the person they have chosen to teach and set up times to meet. Apprentices are also encouraged to be proactive in searching for their tutor.

    If a tutor doesn't find a match, I will begin assigning the remaining tutors to appropriate apprentices. If you are still looking for a tutor after all tutors have been assigned...you have the option of looking through the tutor roster and PM'ing a suitable person (one who teaches the generation you want to learn and is online during similar hours) to ask them if they will take you on as a second apprentice. It's as simple as that!!

    If at any point during this round you encounter a problem (difficulty getting together with your tutor, etc.), let me know and we will work to resolve the issue.

    ****IF YOU SIGN UP CHECK THIS THREAD REGULARLY TO FIND OUT WHO YOUR TUTOR IS. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE APPRENTICE TO SEEK OUT THEIR TUTOR AND ESTABLISH MEETING TIMES.

    ****CHECK YOUR POST TO SEE WHO YOUR TUTOR IS. I WILL EDIT IT TO SHOW WHO YOU GOT.

    Experience level*: For experience level, I have had about 1 week of actual completive play on NetBattle. I have created my first team and still working on things to make it better, and ways to better utilize the teams full effectiveness.

    A little about myself: [FONT=&quot]I have just gotten back into Pokemon about a year ago since December, due to a friend of mine. I have pretty much gotten tired of the ease of the computer AI and the lack of actual challenging fights that require thinking. I like to spend my time breeding different Pokemon with different sets of moves and getting an overall full legitimate collection of all 386 Pokemon (one of which I am missing…damn Deoxys!). In addition to that, I am a junior at BGSU studying Microbiology and Education and Human Development.
