    Hi,
    Is it fine to use "with" in this sentence?

    I accomplished the missions my tutor intrusted me with.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, not homeworks but tasks I commplished in the framework of my internship that I am writing a report about.
    I intended to say: My tutor gave me missions, and I accomplished them all.

    I finally decided to get rid of it.

    to accomplish the missions my tutor assigned to me.

    What do you think?

    May be :
    I completed the missions assigned to me by my professor.

    Yes, I agree with that.

    borhane - I'll just mention that the word "missions" makes you sound like James Bond or Tom Cruise!

    Maybe you mean assignments. (?)

    e.g. "I completed the assignments my tutor gave me." (just a suggestion)

    Hi,
    I think it should be:

    I accomplished the missions entrusted to me by my tutor.

    These are not missions. There is a useful summary of the connotations of the word mission here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission
