Tutoring System


Tutoring is an organized help for students based on a personal approach.

Student tutors guide their protégés (students) and advise them on how to solve their problems. The tutor can also advise students on their choice of study fields, elective courses, further studies, etc. The purpose of tutoring is  to strengthen the contacts between students by exchanging useful information and experiences in the field of studies and student affairs.

Tutors from Master's study programs can offer undergraduate students information from their personal study experience.
