Here’s what our trainees and mentees are saying

In the past few months, I've had 3 interesting scientific articles published!!! I have a knack for research but this was fired up when I got the right research mentoring. Now I don't have to just write, my works can be visible!!! Even more interesting is the wonderful comments from reviewers. Thanks to Academic Hive for the wonderful support provided in the course of producing these research works..

I want to say I’m very thankful and appreciate everything you did for me. Thank you for your patience and tolerance through the mentoring. And yes! I was able to write my advanced statistics course confidently and I got full points. Thank you AH for helping me. You made this happen and I really appreciate it.
I started my research feeling completely clueless and fagged out. A friend referred me to Academic Hive and I was skeptical when I was assured that I would find my research interesting. True to your words, my research journey became interesting due to your committed mentoring. You made the research process so easy and fun! I loved my final output! My supervisor did too. Guess what! I woke up to a strong positive recommendation from her on LinkedIn, and I didn’t ask for it! Right now, I feel like a star!

My research work is on renewable energy and I saw the opportunity to apply for an ECREE grant from the Academic Hive website. In addition to receiving coaching on my research work, Academic Hive provided support during the grant application through proof-reading and reviewing my manuscript, emails and CV. Good news! I was selected for the grant. Thank you Academic Hive
