Am I a good IT Mentor candidate?

I wish to keep my full-time job and do mentoring only on weekends. How does it work?
We're looking for both full-time and part-time mentors who are available on weekends. It depends on you how much can you work besides this job.
What about the working hours?
On specific weekends (roughly 3 weekends per month) your working hours are 9:00 am - 6:00 pm with 1 hour lunch break. On the other working days it's more flexible, and possible to work remotely. All together we expect you to work min 30, max 40 hours per week.
I don’t have programming experience as such, but I can teach project management, agile methodologies and soft skills.
Although these skills are valuable to us, we really need mentors with a strong, commercial programming background right now. Ideally 2-3 years of experience.
Are you looking for any specific programming language?
We specialize predominantly in Java, C#, Javascript and Python. If you have experience if any of these, you are a great candidate for us!
