This year’s International Tutor School will span August 24-26 and will be held by Northern (Arctic) Federal University for the seventh time. Organized by NArFU Department of International Cooperation, the School traditionally brings together undergraduate and graduate students of all majors.
The School seeks to build a team of tutors to guide international freshman students through their orientation process, a part of which is adaptation to a new social, cultural and educational environment. Its agenda including workshops, open discussions and lectures, the School will equip its participants with basic knowledge of tutoring.
This year’s School will be held online and has been applied by more than forty students, who will be guided, during the three upcoming days, by invited experts to improve their leadership skills and professional competencies. One of this year’s most important topics is how tutorship services can be delivered effectively in an online format during the pandemic.
“NArFU’s Tutorship Programme is an excellent tool to help international students to adapt to a new environment. Competently trained tutors can always help with a variety of issues ranging from accommodation to curriculum to organizational things students face on their day of arrival, so that they could feel comfortable,” said Anastasia Petryakova, expert at NArFU Department of International Cooperation’s International Academic Mobility Centre.
The role of a tutor is a good chance for students to use their potential, improve language skills and try themselves as guidance providers. To learn more and join click here.
