Information for current postgraduate students
Undergraduate Mentor and Tutor Program
The undergraduate mentor and tutor program is overseen by the Earth Science Society Executive Committee (ESSEC) and conducted by a group of passionate postgraduate volunteers.
These tutors make themselves available for both group organized and private extra classes throughout the semester. The classes are for any Earth Sciences subject that the tutor feels comfortable with. Additionally, guidance is offered in other fields by mentors, such as scientific writing or presentation skills.
Interested students can contact a member of the mentor and tutor program to arrange sessions. All one-on-one tutor sessions are conducted on request, and mutually-agreed fees for these individual sessions are paid to the specific tutor. Class representatives will organize larger classes with the ESSEC to review work before exams. Large classes are completely free although a donation to the postgraduates for their time and effort is appreciated.
