Alexander Hartwein

 

Dear fellow Students,

My name is Alexander Hartwein and I am from a small village which is close to Vienna/ Austria. I speak German and English and my study program is International Relations.

I was confronted with the same problems as each student in the first semester such as job, academic and bureaucratic issues. In this respect, I felt the desire to implement systems which should make it easier for students to access the services offered by the Welcome Centre more conveniently. This motivation was and is supported by great collaboration with other Students4Students-Tutors. Furthermore, I am motivated to be part of a team responsible for assisting our students, thereby promoting their welfare.

In the case that you have an idea on what we can realize in terms of events, services or to make a kind of guideline for any problems, please feel free to get in touch with us and give us a feedback. You can either contact us via e-mail welcome-centre@hochschule-rhein-waal.de or you can come to us during our consultation hours.

Dikran Camgozoglu

My name is Dikran Camgozoglu and I am an Armenian who comes from Turkey. I can speak Western Armenian and Turkish as native and I can also speak English and German. I am an International student who studies Industrial Engineering B.Sc in Kleve. I like swimming, playing billiard, reading political and historical books and also, watching documentaries.  I also like to learn about new cultures but this is actually my motivation to be a tutor as well. I see every culture as beautiful in its own unique way and that is the reason for being a tutor for me. Due to this fact, I want to help to new students who encountered some problems in their arrival to Germany. Eventually, there might be a different system in their home country about education and social system than Germany (or even culturally) and I would like to guide them according to the challenges they had.  In the end, I had this experience when I first arrived to Germany and now, I am glad to help our university’s fellow students about their adaptation. See you in the Welcome Centre!

Viktoriia Sakun

Viktoriia Sakun-Agribusiness-Faculty of Life Sciences

My name is Viktoriia Sakun and I came from Kyiv, Ukraine. I am studying Agribusiness. I can speak Ukrainian, English, Russian, French and German.  My hobbies are travelling, meeting new people, exploring traditional cuisine, history and culture, skiing, swimming, reading, watching old movies, doing powerlifting.
I decided to be a tutor, as I know by my own experience how the foreign student fells. I understand how hard is it to integrate to a different society, to accept the norms, to overcome homesickness, to fight with all the documents problems, to learn a new language, to be strong.
I like to share my knowledge and to help people. Thus, whenever you need support fell to contact us by email, on Facebook page or during our working hours.

Haya Essa

My name is Haya Essa. I am from Canada. I can speak English, German, Arabic and French. I am currently studying Bioengineering in Kleve. I moved to Europe when I was 18 years old and I haven’t looked back since. I wanted to become a tutor simply because I wanted to be a part of a talented group of students who are working really hard every day to help the students in need.  Since I am also an international student who has also gone through the many ups and downs of moving and adapting to a new country, I would like to use my past knowledge and the mistakes to help students who are/will be in the same position. My main goal is to help students who are trying to obtain their visa because it isn’t always an easy process; therefore, I still want to assist them to the best of my abilities.
 “No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”

I am studying the bachelor of Industrial Engineering at HSRW 4th semester currently.
My hobbies are mostly sports, I love playing sports. At the moment I am playing in a football team in Kleve (DJK Kleve). I basically enjoy any sport, during the summer I usually also go surfing, sailing etc, and during the winter I play other sports like football or golf. However, in Kleve I am mostly playing football. Also, one of the activities I also like the most is travelling and discovering new places , and here I have been able to do so using our semester ticket, and I have loved it. My motivation to be a tutor is to help other students with the same situations I experienced in the past and also with those I did not experience and are new for me. You can always  learn new things. Also, I enjoy organizing events, working in teams and being involved at many things at once, I am a very active person who does not want to just stand by. Hope to see you soon in our office!

Fiona Reims

My name is Fiona Sophia Reims and I was born and raised in a small village called Hinsbeck in Germany, which is close to the Dutch border and the city Venlo.

I lived in London for 4 months to practice my English after completing my A-Levels. Afterwards I travelled for 6 more months through Southern Europe. I worked in hostels, language schools and simply enjoyed my time abroad. I love travelling, meeting new people and getting in touch with different cultures.

During my free time, I like cooking and going out with my friends, but also just staying at home to read a book or to watch a show can be tempting.

In 2015, I started studying ‘International Business and Social Sciences’ at our university Hochschule-Rhein-Waal.  Since the winter term ’16 I am working for the Welcome Centre as a tutor and together with two more colleagues I am also responsible for the ‘Leadership for Syria’-Programme.

Being a tutor at the Welcome Centre means for me helping students to overcome obstacles and to find solutions for any daily life problems in order to ensure that everybody can enjoy their time here in Kleve, just as I do.

So, if you ever need help of any kind, feel free to ask us!
