Student mentoring – A mentor’s perspective
Truong My Duyen is in her final semester of the Professional Communication program, and served as a mentor in SLAMs for Communication for four semesters.
SLAMs (Student Learning Advice Mentors) – RMIT Vietnam’s premier peer-mentoring program, is now in its eighth semester of operation at RMIT Vietnam’s Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City campuses. The program has continued its mission of helping students learn from high-achieving predecessors by making mentors available for more courses this semester.
From SLAMs I can understand that one of the best ways to learn about something is by teaching or sharing knowledge. By helping others with their studies, we can develop ourselves into people who can solve problems for other students. We can also sharpen our communication skills and review knowledge about important subjects at the same time.
Mentees also express appreciation to dedicated support of mentors
SLAMs mentors are really friendly and approachable students. I feel very comfortable seeking their help when I have problems. They provide me with many successful tips to do well in exams and to get high marks on assignments. More importantly, they inspire and motivate me to study with their passion about learning and mentoring.
