How to book a one-to-one
How do I book a one-to-one slot with a Writing Mentor?
You will then be contacted within a minimum of 3 working days, via your Hope email to arrange a suitable slot for your one-to-one. You will be sent a google calendar invitation that will contain the date, time and name of the mentor you will be meeting. You can email in a section of your work before your one-to-one so that the mentor can prepare in advance or you can bring your work with you. Please ensure you have read our “How to prepare" leaflet before you attend. If you are planning on looking at a piece of work with a Writing Mentor then it is essential that you book your one-to-one well in advance of your submission date.
Currently all one to one sessions are provided virtually and your mentor will send you an invitation with a link so you can join the meeting.
How long does my one-to-one last?
Your one-to-one will last 45 minutes. Once your one-to-one has finished the mentor will record what has been discussed and you will be sent a copy of this document. 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 one-to-one?
If you can’t attend your one-to-one please ensure you email in advance as soon as possible or telephone the Library Help Point on 0151 291 2000. Please ensure that you are not late for your online session as it will mean you have less time with your mentor.
Due to high levels of demand for one-to-one appointments, if a student misses 2 of their appointments and does not inform us in advance, then they will go on to a waiting list and the student will have to wait 2 weeks until the appointment can be rebooked. If a third appointment is missed, then the student will not be allocated an appointment for the rest of the term.
