What is tutoring?
The easiest way to answer this question is that tutoring is organized help for students. Through tutoring, we want to facilitate the integration of students into the university environment and advise them in their studies, as well as in solving any problems they face.
Tutoring means the process of supporting education, in which a tutor who is an expert with experience in a certain field transfers their competencies, experience and acquaintances to students.
At the European Faculty of Law of the New University, we support four basic forms of tutoring, namely introductory tutoring, course tutoring, tutoring for foreign students and tutoring for students with special needs.
INTRODUCTORY STUDENT TUTORING is intended for first-year students who have entered a new study environment. Introductory tutors present effective ways of studying and preparing for exams, basic information about 1st year courses and present extracurricular activities.
COURSE TUTORING is focused on a specific subject. Student tutors who have excelled in a particular course offer students additional help in understanding and mastering the study material of individual courses.
In the academic year 2020/21, course tutoring is provided by the following students:
-Janez Sebastjan Kocmur;
SPECIAL NEEDS TUTORING is intended for students who face various obstacles during their studies. The tutor directs the student with special needs in the development of those abilities that enable them to successfully integrate into study work and student life. It is performed individually and is thus adjusted to the needs of each individual student.
In the 2020/21 academic year, tutoring for students with special needs is provided by Neja Marc.
TUTORING FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS (mostly foreign students who come to us within the ERASMUS exchange programmes. It is intended for foreign students who face various embarrassments and obstacles when moving to another country.
In the academic year 2020/21, tutoring for foreign students is provided by student Peter Antolin.
The basic tasks of tutors for foreign students include providing a variety of information about student and extracurricular life at the faculty, assistance in arranging administrative matters as well as assistance in overcoming cultural differences. The work of these tutors is performed in close collaboration with the International Office.
