Academic Mentoring at BIS HCMC

This past Monday, the Lycee Français International came to BIS to learn about our Academic Mentoring program from students who completed it last year and are taking a leading role in 2019-20.

Academic Mentoring | British International School HCMC

Prefects, Ava Fitoussi and Adwaith Nair, delivered a presentation on Academic Mentoring to the LFI students in attendance, covering everything from building rapport with mentees to the structure of mentoring sessions to the supervisory role of teachers. They then split off into small group discussion so that the visiting students could ask any questions they may have about the program. About the experience our student leaders said:

"Our collaboration with the LFI was an eye-opening experience which allowed us to work with students and teachers, alike, outside of the usual school community. While I had the chance to communicate my knowledge to others, I also found it highly valuable to reflect on my own mentoring abilities and  I hope that we have helped them in their process of implementing a mentoring programme."

Academic Mentoring is a program that began last year with a group of eleven Year 12 students. Their role was to work with Year 10 students who were having difficulty with specific subjects in school or struggled with organisation. Each week, these mentors met with their mentees to support them with each subject, followed by training and reflection sessions on a bi-weekly basis.

Despite their workload, several of these students have returned this year and are leading on getting new Academic Mentors into the program and sharing our good practice with others. This year, we have nearly three times the applicants of the year before in what promises to be a very successful year ahead for Academic Mentoring at BIS Ho Chi Minh City.
