If you are getting close to an assignment deadline, it's okay to feel nervous before handing in your assignment. After all, you worked hard and spent several weeks, if not more, working on the assignment. But you just need that extra little bit of reassurance that the assignment is ready to be handed in. Alternatively, maybe you have already submitted that assignment and just received it back with a grade. You are not sure why you got the grade that you did. You professor's comments may not be very clear as they have hundreds of students' assignments to grade and you are seeking more clarification than your professor was able to provide. This service allows students to submit their assignment and get a second opinion or more detailed feedback on it. In addition to assignment feedback, this service can also help students improve their relationship and communication with their instructor in case of a dispute or disagreement in terms of a grade. The goal of this service is to provide an outside neutral perspective on a situation with the intention of bridging the gap between students' writing and their professors' expectations. In more difficult cases, the academic mentor can also guide students in terms of what their options if a matter is not resolved through communication with instructor.
Please note that an academic mentor does not "fix" the assignment for students, or tell the students what grade they think the student deserves in case of a disagreement between student and faculty. An academic mentor is a neutral party that helps bridge the gap between students' writing and their professors' expectations by helping students develop better academic skills, and stronger communication and conflict resolution skills. An academic mentor does not contact or communicate with instructors / professors on students' behalf and does not promote any form of real or perceived plagiarism.
