Third-year Bachelor of Business student Nemanja Cvetkovic recently spent time with a student mentor at the City Flinders Learning Hub. Nemanja required help understanding elements of statistical theory for an assignment. He had this to say about his experience with mentor Cheshna Boolaky:
“Cheshna helped me tremendously and enabled me to reach my potential in getting my highest grade. She was patient and knowledgeable, and we worked on the key concepts by focusing on similar examples of the questions. She also gave me the confidence to continue to work on my own.”
Mentor Cheshna recalled the experience:
“Having completed the unit, I was able to help Neman understand the concepts so that he could continue his assignment on his own. As a mentor it is a pleasure for me to provide guidance and motivate students to achieve good grades.”
