Mentor at Funka

Mentoring support means that students receive support in planning and structuring their studies and study situations. Mentor and student meet regularly and create tools and conditions together so that the student can ultimately, on their own, complete their studies.

The mentor can, for example, support by sorting and prioritizing course assignments, clarifying the schedule, setting intermediate goals and adjusting how the time planning works. Common reasons for a student receiving mentor support recommended are that the student has ADHD, high-functioning autism or permanent mental illness.

The mentor does not need subject knowledge, and the mentor's support is not intended to be a tutor. The mentor supports planning and study techniques.

Mentor support is always a collaboration between mentor and student, and the mentor support is based on the student's will and initiative. You agree on what to focus on, when to see each other, and how often. The student is responsible for regularly setting aside time for mentor meetings and keeping in touch with the mentor.
