I had the following issue when connecting to Tor. If I tried using a VPN such as hotspot shield would that fix my issue? Any help would be great!

A VPN would help, but a better solution would be to use bridges. Something is blocking Tor from connecting to the directory server.

Just follow the steps on the bridges website: https://bridges.torproject.org/
