Who can join the Student Mentoring and Tutoring program?
The Student Tutoring program is available for all students enrolled in a Diploma program in Bond University College or Undergraduate program at Bond University.
How can tutors help me?
The 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.
