International Supertutor 2016 is Jenni Airola. She provided a good team spirit and paid attention to everyone equally. Airola also contacted all the students she tutored well in advance and made them feel more than welcome.
Airola studies fifth year in Department of Teacher Education. This was her first time tutoring. Airola wanted to meet international students and improve her language skills. She was happy to introduce Finnish culture and student traditions to the exchange students.
”As a tutor you get to meet students around the world and you learn about different cultures. I have lived in Turku for over four years now but I learnt new things about the city too when I was figuring out how to introduce Turku to the exchange students”, Airola tells.
TYY rewards Supertutor and International supertutor once a year. Eeva Markkanen was selected as the Supertutor of 2016. Tutor Lassi Laine and International Tutor Miikal Hovi received honorable mentions.
