Academic Integrated Mentoring

Your Path to Academic Excellence

We understand how difficult it is to be motivated and productive. Designed for students like you with demanding US University workloads, our Academic Integrated Mentoring (AIM) supports students struggling to begin and maintain their study process.

How Does It Work?

You’ll begin your AIM process with a consultation with our Academic Director Charlotte McKechnie, who will create a list of goals for you based on recommended improvements. Then you’ll be expertly matched with your mentor, who will share your academic interests.

During the start of mentoring, you’ll have frequent meetings with your mentor.

As you become more empowered and independent, you and your mentor will meet once a week as a check-in and for continued support.

“My tutor Charlotte McKechnie was excellent. She made me feel confident and able in every session, and all the work we did was targeted on specific areas of improvement (I was studying for the USA’s SAT). In the end, I obtained a score that I was delighted with, so the sessions really paid off. Thank you to A-List and Charlotte”
