How to book an appointment?
To book a one-to-one appointment with a Study Skills Mentor you will need to fill out the Study Skills Appointment Form, which also contains a Study Skills Service Charter. This Charter outlines what you can expect from your mentor during your appointment and what the mentor expects from you. Alternatively, you can ask for a registration form at the main help desk in The Sheppard-Worlock Library. The Learning Skills and Spaces Co-ordinator will then contact you, within a minimum of 3 working days, via your hope email to arrange a suitable slot for your tutorial session. You will be sent information regarding your session including information about the date, time and name of the mentor you will be meeting.
How long does my appointment last?
Your tutorial will last 45 – 50 minutes. Once your appointment has finished, the Study Skills Mentor will record what has been discussed and you will be asked to read and sign this document, to show that you agree with the recorded information. You will then be asked to fill in a feedback form and asked to put this into the feedback box, so we can evaluate our service. Please note all this information is confidential.
What happens if I can’t attend my tutorial slot?
If you can’t attend your appointment please ensure you email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible in advance or telephone the Library Help Point on 0151 291 2000. Please ensure that you are not late for your session as it will mean you have less time with your Study Skills Mentor.
The Study Skills Mentors will be holding drop-ins please keep referring back to this page for more up to date information.
