Tutor application + trainings

Apply to become a tutor

“I decided to be a peer tutor because my own tutors were so amazing! When I started my studies I didn’t know anyone from my degree programme or my way around the city. But with their help everything went fine and felt so easy. I wanted to do my part and help the students next year.”’

Participating in all of the trainings is compulsory for everyone. More detailed information is provided through email for the chosen applicants. You can find the timetable for the trainings from below.

EXHANGE TUTOR APPLICATION

The Fall 2022 tutor application period has ended. All applicants will be interviewed. All applicants will be notified of the selections in week 45.

Exchange tutoring includes more individual guidance when compared to peer tutoring. As an exchange tutor, you get to help the exchange student get started in a completely new environment and it’s a good opportunity to gain experience from guidance. On top of this, exchange tutoring is a great warm-up for your own possible exchange period!

If you want, it’s possible to apply for both of the tutoring forms to tutor both freshers and a few exchange students. If you apply for both, you must participate in peer tutor training and the first evening of exchange tutor training.

Interested? You may ask for more information from your own tutors and their head tutors, especially degree- and exchange head tutors. You can always contact us as well from tutor@metkaweb.fi or our chat on the metkaweb.fi website. 

PEER TUTORING APPLICATION

The Fall 2022 tutor application period has ended. All applicants will be interviewed. All applicants will be notified of the selections in week 43.

We are now looking for peer tutors to all the new freshers who start next semester. 

Please note that main exchange tutor application period starts after the peer tutor application period.

Anyone, who is studying in Metropolia and has been a fresher themselves can apply to be a tutor. The stage of your own studies is not relevant – as long as you will be present during the 2023 Spring semester. All applicants will be invited to interviews, and information about selections will be sent as soon as possible to all applicants. The dates for all of the trainings can be found below.

In addition to METKA’s website, the easiest way to find out more about tutoring is through your own tutors and head tutors. These competent tutors can answer, among other things, to everything. We here at METKA are glad to provide answers as well. The best way to reach us is through our email, tutor@metkaweb.fi or our chat that can be found on the metkaweb.fi website.
