    Ok, we are ready to begin Round Five of the tutoring program; it will last for the next 3 weeks ( 06/18-07/02 )! 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!

    A little about myself:
    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.

    Generations I want to learn: GSC OU... UU ability is a plus. I have decided that I would like to be proficient in one version and kind of sucky at the other two rather than mediocre in all three. Throw your best GSC tutor at me.

    Online Hours: Sometimes it varies, but on a normal Summer day any time from 12:00 - 9:00 I might be on. I'm usually on the PokeRealm server now, but I can make it to Smogon if my tutor doesn't go to PR also.
    Experience Level: Ok... I'm Ok at predicting and battling I guess, but there's something holding me back from winning, and I really don't know what it is. Perhaps it is pointing out weaknesses to certain Pokemon and countering them, maybe I'm just not good enough a predictor. I'm hoping my tutor and I can work on both, as these seem to be what's nagging me so often.
    A Little About Myself: Sports fanatic living in Buffalo, New York. I'm also interested in Music, various Computer stuff, etc.
    Generations I want to learn: Just RS OU.
