Mariatu B - Mentee
I was introduced to A&F tutoring by a friend when I needed help with finding a graduate job. I have never looked back. Aloysius helped me to find a direction in relation to finding a job, supported the whole career mentoring process from sourcing jobs, preparing customised CV, personal statements, significantly developed my interview skills and talked me through how to submit a successful application.
Thanks to his support, I now have a professional graduate job with St Georges NHS Hospital. and I am looking forward to continuing the mentor ship in financial education as I plan to invest in the stock market.
