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.”’

Spring 2021 tutor application period is open on 25.1.-14.2.2021. We are now looking for peer and exchange tutors for next Autumn.

Anyone, who is studying in Metropolia and has been a freshman 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 Autumn 2021. All applicants will be invited to interview, and information about selections will be sent as soon as possible to all applicants. The dates for Spring trainings can be found below.

Additionally to METKA 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.
