Who is a tutor?

TU International Club tutor is a voluntary student who is helping foreign students.

At the student’s request, the student will be appointed an active tutor whose work starts from the moment he/she sends you the welcome e-mail and ends with the Intermediate week (in October and April). 

A tutor is a voluntary student of TU who helps foreign students in administrative questions as well as in getting to know Estonian culture. They have answers for questions regarding transportation, banking, shopping, health care, and of course university. The tutor knows where to go and what to do, and they are ready to answer all your queries about life in Estonia.

As the first thing, a tutor can come and pick the student up from the airport/bus station and help him/her go to the dorm/hostel/flat.

During the semester, tutors organize events to introduce Estonian culture, such as sauna evening, various tours, workshops etc as well as trips to different parts of Estonia.
