Learning partners make the process of study less lonely. We might have a problem that we think we can’t overcome and then we see our LP who breaks the task into nice easy stages. Sometimes this process actually stops us dropping out.
Learning partners are essential to the Clemente program because they give emotional and academic support, without them we would be lost.
Study is the highlight of our lives and the learning partners help make it enjoyable.
Learning partners basically make the whole process a success, by their contribution, dedication and working alongside us. They encourage and inspire us and make us feel good about ourselves. They also help discipline us when we go astray or don’t do what we should be doing.
We are out of practice or simply haven’t got the writing and computer skills and the learning partners give us individual attention. This help is what we sink or swim by.
Most of us have a very scratchy idea of what studying means. Learning partners help us find the right way that suits our individual needs. We may need support by boosting our confidence and encouraging us to stick with it if we feel like giving up. We may need help with skills for essay writing or oral presentations. We may need help with computer skills, or research. Simply we just need your support. None of us are used to studying, it is new and can be frightening. You are a gift beyond measure.
