Tutoring

Peer tutoring

Peer tutors welcome new students during their first days of their studies and keep their eye on their group of students during their first semester. A peer tutor helps new students to get a head start at their studies and student life. Peer tutors also help to create a group spirit among new students by organizing various social events.

New students can turn toward their peer tutors if they have questions about school or about student life. A tutor can advise them or help them find the right contact person at Metropolia.

Exchange tutoring

Are you interested in other cultures? Do you know Helsinki region as your own pockets? Are you planning to have an exchange period yourself? Now it’s your possibility to become an exchange tutor for all those exchange students who come to Finland from all over the world!

Exchange tutors will take care of exchange students who come to study at Metropolia and help them manage the transition into a new culture. They pick up the new students from the airport or harbor, take them to their HOAS apartment and show them around their neighborhood and campus. In addition, exchange tutors will arrange a variety of recreational activities to make the exchange students’ time in Finland exciting and special.

Working with exchange students is a great preparation for your own exchange period abroad. As an exchange tutor you will also get a chance to practice your language skills, get better in intercultural understanding and communicating with others, develop your performing, guidance and organizing skills, and last but not least feel the warmth of helping others and make new friends!

Any Metropolia student with a satisfactory level of English can become an exchange tutor. The language of instruction at exchange tutor trainings and other meetings is always English. You can also get credits for exchange tutoring!
