Tutoring was established by Law no. 341 dated 1990 (Reform of the Italian university educational systems) as an activity designed to "guide and assist students throughout their studies, making them active participants in the educational process and removing obstacles to successful course attendance, also through initiatives tailored to the needs, attitudes and requirements of individuals" (Art. 13).
The Tutoring service has as its objective the assistance to students during their studies, before and during their university career, so that this can take place within the times provided for by the didactic regulations and in a profitable way from the point of view of training the professional and human skills. Tutoring activities are organized into the following services:
The service is designed to raise awareness of the educational activities in the present studies courses provided by the school, in order to clarify the educational goals and career opportunities to future freshmen. The Service also provides information to students regarding the practical organization of studies (structure of study plans, organization of teaching, etc.), the support structures offered by the Politecnico. This activity involves Master of Science students-tutors, technical administrative staff.
The Didactic Tutoring is a service aimed at students that provides useful interventions to overcome the difficulties that the student encounters during the course of study and to obtain a profitable attendance of the courses. Provides support through the activation of preparatory and recovery forms of teaching, assisting teaching on specific topics, where students show deficiencies or need for further study. The interventions consist of additional and complementary lessons to the official courses (support cycles, exercises, etc.) and classroom support, in particular in the case of the Laboratories. In the first case, students are informed by means of notices published on the website (News section) and by sending timely email communications, in the second case, students will receive information from the teachers in charge of the Laboratories.
