I highly recommend Bastienne's Academic Mentoring services - in fact I do recommend her to all my friends and acquaintances working on academic writing. Whether you are new to academia, a masters or PhD student or if you are an academic working on a paper - a session with Bastienne is likely to get you from stuck to writing, from confused to focused, from overwhelmed to motivated and engaged. I read a number of books explaining the thesis-writing process and although they were helpful, Bastienne's engaged one-on-one expertise and facilitation methods were in the end the only thing that made finishing my thesis a reality. Her approach is straightforward, firm, supportive and effective. Each session was tremendously valuable - within one session I found my academic voice, and I persisted with regular meetings with her until my thesis was completed. Were it not for these academic mentoring sessions I am sure I would not have completed my thesis this past February. Danya Davis Masters Diversity Studies - UCT

Academic Mentoring, led by Bastienne Klein, ensured that I wrote a powerful and concise project proposal. After the project proposal was submitted, it came back with the minimal recommendations and the comment made by my supervisor was: "Good work, especially in reference to the argumentative style." This was all due to Academic Mentoring's quality mentoring and professionalism. I highly recommend their services. J.C. MBA candidate, Management College of Southern Africa.

"Thank you for your help! It made a huge difference in my approach to my theory. I'm happy to let you know that I've submitted a complete proposal, which hasn't happened in a while. I feel less anxious about writing my paper. " T. K. Fine Arts honours Student, University of Stellenbosch.

Bastienne’s goal-orientated and practical approach to academic writing is heaven sent. After just two sessions she has helped me clarify the structure and organize ideas in the post-graduate paper I am writing. As a mature student I appreciate her encouraging support, as well as her expertise in the tacit conventions of formulating and writing an academic argument. I will certainly make use of her services on an ongoing basis. Erika Jacobs (M.Mus LRSM)

Bastienne was always willing to assist me with my research. She has a really good grasp of different research methods and helped me to practically structure my research despite my topic being quite vague. She offers great clarity and I would certainly recommend her as a research mentor. E. Mostert, MBA, UCT Graduate School of Business
