## SOS for GRADUATE MENTORS

Hi Everyone,

We have received SOS from several undergraduates in MAT257Y1 and
MAT157Y1. This can be an unsettling and frightening time for first year
students and second year students as they try to build a good math
base on which to grow.

I have a growing list of students who would like to be enrolled in Math
programs and it is with these students that I would like to establish
contact with graduate students who are able to provide some guidance
for them this time of adjustment.

NOTE:

THERE WILL BE A MAXIMUM OF 3 OFFICIAL MENTORING GROUP
SESSIONS FOR THE YEAR.  THIS MAY INVOLVE THE REVIEW OF
PAST PAPERS OR EXAM PREP ACTIVITIES!!

What is in it for you?

*   Participation in these type of activities is a crucial requirement for
some scholarships

*   Employers regard this type of behaviour favourably when they
examine applicants to jobs

*   You will be contributing to the renewed focus on improving the
students' experience in which the Mathematics Department is
currently engaging

*   Recognition by the Department

Would you consider volunteering as a Math mentor for this year?

Your role:

*   Provide contact information for student mentee ( An e-mail
address other than the U of T address is welcomed)

*   Refer student to known resources based on your prior experience

*   Respond to student's queries or refer student to
Undergraduate Administrator

*   Provide encouragement to students

*   Where applicable, encourage student in Math Union Activities

*   Where possible, provide academic assistance Maintain
relationship in accordance with all Canadian Laws on societal
behaviour

*   Please reply to this e-mail if you would like to the volunteer with
title ???GRAD  MENTOR???

Thank you for providing the contact information for the assigned
student.

All the best,

Donna
