Tutoring is an individualized service which promotes a close relationship between the tutor-tutee through constructive dialogue and its central focus is learning. Each student has an academic tutor when they enter UDLAP.

The University, interested in establishing bonds of cordiality, trust and a medium propitious for good academic development, assigns academic tutors who are full-time professors of the institution, belonging to the department you have chosen to study. It is important to mention that the academic tutor stays with you throughout your whole university trajectory until you conclude your studies.

What can I talk about in academic tutoring?

Having the opportunity to meet with a full-time professor with vast experience in your field, will allow you to share your interests, academic preferences and establish first contact in a cordial environment. Subjects most frequent in a tutoring conversation are: reviewing your academic status, reviewing the study plan, orientation on foreign Universities according to your professional interest, honors program, university activities, orientation on institutional rules, among others. It is worth mentioning that all academic tutors are guided by the UDLAP Personal Data Protection Policy and Confidentiality Notice.

How does going to my academic tutor benefit me?

A tutor knows the university career you have chosen and their academic level offers a wide panorama on the profession and field of work you may develop in. Furthermore, a close bond is established which will allow you to talk about your worries and personal projects towards working in the profession you chose, since they will accompany you throughout your whole program.

According to the visits you make to your tutor semester by semester, you may strengthen the relationship of trust and communication and this way discover your abilities, qualities and interests that will allow you to have a guide toward your professional future.

Remember that each interview has an objective like: getting to know your tutor, reviewing your academic performance, orientation towards improving your academic and study skills, information to join an academic professor on a research project in your area, advice on the subjects you should enroll next semester, among others.
