“I decided to be a 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.”’
Tutor application period of autumn 2023 has ended. The next application period is at spring 2024.
Exchange tutor application
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or our chat on the metkaweb.fi website.
