Mentoring Tutors

Academic mentors prove to be valuable to any student, especially those starting their first year at university or another academic institution, as a source of support and advice. At Tavistock Tutors, we match students with the perfect mentor – someone who is enrolled in the same institution and studying the same course, but who is a few years older and therefore can provide guidance throughout the whole learning process.

Pastoral support from an academic mentor

The peer-to-peer relationship found in academic mentoring is what makes the mentoring so effective. A mentor not only tutors the student by helping with assignments, going through key concepts and theory and explaining points of difficulty, they can also give support in other aspects of the student’s education. A mentor will make sure students are aware of campus resources, can provide insights to the university or academic institution in general and offer real, truthful advice about the modules and options from a student’s perspective that the lecturers might not give themselves. This ‘insider-advice’ is vitally important for any new student at an institution – mentors know exactly what a course will be like because they’ve done it themselves.

Academic results from mentoring

Investing in time with a mentor leads to substantial academic advantages as well as pastoral. The close relationship that is fostered in these peer-to-peer mentoring sessions enables the mentor to come to understand the student’s learning habits, their strongest and weakest areas and their existing skills. Our academic mentors can draw on this information to produce a unique mentoring programme for each mentee. Personalised, private mentoring leads to great results because it gives the mentee one-on-one teaching where they have the time to improve.

At Tavistock Tutors, we work hard to ensure that all of our mentors are friendly and welcoming people who are a pleasure to be around. An academic mentoring role is as much about support as it is about teaching, and therefore we make sure that all of our mentors can fulfil both aspects of the role.

If you are heading to university for the first time, starting a new course, or feel like you need extra support at your academic institution, get in touch with Tavistock Tutors to find out how we can help you.

Upon completing my masters I began my foundation Loophole as a way of giving back and helping students derive the best from their education. I did so with the sole intention of guiding young students and teaching them skills such as confidence, public speaking and critical thinking- skills not explicitly taught at the university level. Since starting, I have had the opportunity to work with a vast array of students (......
