Recruitment of GO Tutors 

Tutors for the AIKOM/USTEP students and the first-year students of PEAK

GO  TUTOR SYSTEM

Globalization Office (GO) is looking for students who can support incoming international students including AIKOM (Abroad in Komaba, a one-year undergraduate exchange program) USTEP (University-wide Student Exchange Program) and PEAK (Programs in English at Komaba, undergraduate degree programs).
 
GO Tutors assist the international students with their studies, and give advice and assistance as the new students adjust to a new environment. The tutoring session will take place in GO Lounge, located in 21 KOMCEE West. The tutoring is not necessarily a one-on-one session.
 
There will also be GO Tutor meetings, where each tutor will be asked to report on his/her work, and discuss how to deal with certain issues or how to improve the tutor system. GO Tutors will also be expected to proactively contribute to other related activities of GO, working with faculty members.
 
Each GO Tutor should have enough communication skills, problem-solving ability as well as creativity, and should be willing to work with international students. Working as a GO Tutor will be a great opportunity for those who are interested in befriending and collaborating with people of diverse cultural backgrounds.
