Mentor services

The mentors are available to provide support virtually either by email or online chat for writing support please contact writingmentor@hope.ac.uk and for Study Skills contact studyskills@hope.ac.uk   Writing mentors can review a piece of written work and provide feedback as well as sharing techniques and tools that can help you to develop your academic writing skills.

There are lots of resources available from these web pages and the Study Skills Moodle including the presentations used in our workshops.

The mentors are all studying at postgraduate level at Hope, which means they have faced the everyday challenges you are now facing, such as learning how to write critically or reflectively, learning how to reference your work or working towards a dissertation deadline.
