My name is Tahmina Sultana. I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I speak several languages. My mother tongue is Bangla and the second one is English. I speak fluent Hindi and of course German. I am studying Bio Engineering, department of Life Science. My hobbies are reading lots of books, music, photography, travelling, and etc.

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.”

― Charles Dickens

Varsha Nursee

My name is Varsha Nursee and I come from Mauritius. I am currently doing my masters in Mechanical Engineering at the University. I can speak Mauritian Creole, English, French and German.

Having lived away from home for 7 years now, I can totally relate to the challenges that we students face when in a foreign country. I think that being a tutor is a very rewarding role and I therefore thoroughly enjoy being able to help, support and motivate students in what they find difficult and challenging.

Should you have any worries or questions at all, you can contact us via Facebook, email or come by our office during our consultation hours - we’ll be more than happy to help you!

Sandy Nguyen

My name is Sandy Nguyen and I am currently studying International Business and Social Sciences in my third semester. I was born in Germany, but my parents are from Vietnam. I can speak German, English as well as some French and Vietnamese.

My hobbies include travelling, hanging out with my friends and music.

Having lived abroad myself, I am familiar with the struggles every international student has to face. Therefore, I know how important support is which you can rely on. Being able to help fellow students overcome their challenges is very rewarding, so I always try to support them as best as I can.

I also like reading, writing and board games…

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!

Jorge Galdamez

My name is Jorge Galdamez. I come from El Salvador, a small but great country in Central America. I am going into my 4th semester of Mechatronic Systems Engineering in Hochschule Rhein-Waal. I speak Spanish, English and German. My hobbies involve everything to do with football and playing music.

I became a tutor because from my own background I’ve had many occasions where I was desperate for some guidance to solve problems in university. So, with this position, I hope I will be able to help out students who need some advice and guidance.

Anastasia Dyumina

My name is Anastasia Dümina. I come from Moscow, Russia, and I’m a professional English-Russian-English interpreter. Languages were always a great passion of mine. I speak German and Polish and I am also currently learning Brazilian Portuguese and Spanish at the Language Center of our university. I left my interpreting and teaching careers behind to pursue my dream job of an academic.

At the moment I’m doing my Bachelor’s in Gender and Diversity and I’m in love with gender and feminist theory. In practice, I work in AStA to support and empower our diverse LGBTIQ+ community on campus.

I was eager to join the Welcome Center team as I used to help international students in Moscow and I’m still committed to doing that. I have both seen and experienced firsthand how lost and vulnerable people are in the face of re-location of any kind. I really hope that you will see our campus as a friendly and welcoming place. Feel free to reach out to us any time!

Working in this team of tutors and helping out students in need has been a very overwhelming experience for me. Apart from that I get to learn from the experience and teamwork.

Paola Andrea Teubner Diaz

Hola, Hallo, Hello, Hoi! My name is Paola Andrea Teubner Díaz, long name right?! I was born in Bogota, the capital of Colombia, but was raised in Barranquilla. At the age of 12 my family moved to Mexico, later to Germany, followed by the UK, then the Netherlands and now I am back to Germany! I could be considered a nomad!

I speak German, Spanish, English and Dutch. In Kleve I study International Relations, linked to the Faculty of Society and Economics. My hobbies are dancing to all kinds of music, reading romance and fiction books, photographing and editing pictures!

I am a tutor at the Welcome Center, because I am a very people-oriented kind of person. I like meeting new people, share my experiences and enjoy to be there for other students. One more thing: If you smiled at least once a day, then it was a good day, no matter what! Cheers!
