Exchange student tutors wanted

Student Union POKA is looking for exchange student tutors for the spring semester 2022! The tutors' tasks include offering help and support to the new exchange students of Karelia UAS as they adapt to their new home and get to know the wonders of student life in Finland.

Being an exchange student tutor gives you an opportunity to speak English or other languages and get to know to new cultures easily here in Finland. You’ll get support from POKA’s specialists and other tutors – so no need to have anything else with you than an eager mind and want to learn new things!

Joona talks about what it’s like to be an exchange student tutor :
"Being an exchange student tutor has been very interesting and different experience to me. As an exchange student tutor I've been able to plan many fun events, support exchange students with their arrival to Finland and I've met many new people from very different cultures. Because there are exchange students coming from all over the world, tutoring them is very open-minded and exciting. Being an exchange student tutor requires a little bit of flexibility from the tutor, but I'm glad to help the exchange students however I can. I can imagine how hard it can be to arrive to a strange country and that's why I want to support them, because if I would be in the same situation, any help would be immensely relieving. If you are interested about internationality and networking and you can speak English well enough you should definitely apply to become an exchange student tutor! "
