    Ask for as/being a mentor

    Dear teachers

    In the following sentence, should I use as/being in the following sentence?

    "Peter is all you can ask for as/being a mentor."


    Please advise

    I would say "Peter is all you could ask for/could want in​ a mentor".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
