Indigenous Student Mentoring and Tutoring Program

What is the Indigenous Student Mentoring and Tutoring program

The Indigenous Student Mentoring and Tutoring program is a free peer assisted learning program provided by students for students enrolled in a Diploma or Undergraduate program at Bond University. Our tutors are high achieving students, alumni, and academic staff who can assist you to build confidence throughout your studies, develop transferable learning strategies and study techniques, as well as give general – yet valuable - advice based on their first-hand experience.

Keen to get started? We answer all your questions below! Plus, follow the step-by-step guide to connect with a tutor today. 

How can tutors help me? 

Please note the Indigenous Student Mentoring and Tutoring program is supplementary support with the aim of enabling you to develop your skills and knowledge. The role of our tutors is not to teach nor give you the answers. Rather, our tutors are trained and equipped to offer you the tools and guidance necessary for their mentees to find the answers themselves. Our mentors strive to make this process for students, however, much more seamless, and less overwhelming - by offering experiential insight, personal strategies/tips and tricks that work, in conjunction with ongoing feedback, support, and encouragement. 

Please supplement this service with regular consults with your academic and make an appointment at the Academic Skills Centre:
