The mentee is the student who needs to absorb the mentor’s knowledge and have the ambition and desire to know what to do with this knowledge. As a student, the mentee needs to practice and demonstrate what has been learned.
Take the initiative in the relationship. Invite your mentor to meet with you, suggest topics to discuss, ask for what you need. Use email, phone, and time in person. Your mentor may not have all of the answers, but they will do their best to find answers.
