My experience has been at all educational levels from elementary to university students. I will be adding my own suggestions from my past experience as well as current research. I am opening this page up for dialog, sharing and comments.
The following pdf is an excellent source for the male teacher who is looking for ways to motivate male students in general.

Quotes Regarding Mentoring:
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.”
“Do not train boys to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”
“The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.”
― William Arthur Ward
