    NOT A TEACHER.

    Is the person a professor? If so, "supervising professor" might work.

    Yes. Could you possibly come up with other terms that might be used in a similar context?

    What exactly do you mean? Supervisor is used for a formal relationship. Mentor is informal. At least here.
