The structure of the mentoring/tutoring system:
The Dean of Students assigns each tutor the students to work with each semester. The tutors have their students in at least one of the subjects they teach.
To ensure good monitoring and comply with the requirements of the System of Quality Control of CIS University, at the end of the semester the tutors present a report on each of their tutored students. These reports are delivered to the Dean of Students before the last semester meeting of the semester.
The role of an academic tutor is:
- Hold regular meetings with their tutored students; must have at least one before and one after the middle of the semester.
- To be someone that students can trust and who they know they can go to in case of need.
- Keep a record of all meetings.
- Help the student to plan their studies, better organize their time and talk to their teachers.
- Develop strategies for improvement and provide support.
