    Manual for tutors

     This manual is written for students who tutor international students. The content covers “What is Tutoring About,” “What Tutors Need to Know,” and “Common Issues with International Students,” and it contains all the forms you need to submit. All tutors are required to read this manual.

     There is an important information book which is called “Kanazawa University Life and Study Guidebook” for international students. This Guidebook is like a dictionary for their study and life in Kanazawa University. It will be updated every fiscal year. Please refer to it when you support as a tutor.

    • 201710_Tutor Manual (Japanese only) *Tutors should have good command of Japanese language, otherwise tutors can not help their daily lives in Japan. If one tutor does not understand tutor manual or tutor orientation, it means he/she is not suitable to be a tutor. But if you became a tutor without understanding Japanese, you need to ask other tutors, friends, or your academic advisor about how to write the documents.
