I actually never had a real mentor(I learnt all of what i know by myself and by the experience).
I havent been a real mentor to everyone in a work but i teached few kids programming in a primary school as an assistant to free time class programming teacher.

They were angry at me most of the time because i gave them work above their skill level.
The words i used were: "You never learn a thing when i give you work that you already know how to do, But if i give you thing that you never even heard of you will learn new thing every second and with the hate on me combined you will remember it for a long time".
And it paid of.
The kids learnt the things really fast.
When i came back to check my primary school the free class was canceled but the kids are programming in free time and are learning new things.

So in my experience mentoring can be a great experience.
