During the university, students are supposed to enrich their knowledge constantly and be successful in their academic field. However, students are less likely to achieve rounded development on their own. This is the reason why undergraduates need others’ help. When thinking about who plays the most important role in helping students to study in universities, different people have different ideas. While some people may believe it is family and friends, and some consider it is high-school teachers, I think it is university tutors who is key.

Firstly, university tutors are helpful in professional academic research. When students have difficulty in study, tutors can provide individual instruction. Since they have already studied this field for a long time. As for me, I major in computer science. When I have problems with programming, my tutor always proposes more accurate and comprehensible solutions patiently than mine. And I can learn programming thinking pattern from her suggestions. Thanks to her, I am familiar with programming and find it interesting now.

Furthermore, tutors can broaden students’ professional horizon. Tutors may teach basic knowledge in the major, but what they are digging into is probably the most advanced in the field. Knowing any of those will be valuable for students. For example, I used to help my tutor who teaches machine learning with some additional jobs in his digital vein comparison project based on neutral network. My team members and I compared more than 70,000 digital vein images with our own naked eye. This seemingly boring task made me understand the boredom behind scientific research, so that I can be better prepared for it in the future.

In conclusion, I really believe university tutors have a vital role to play in terms of helping us succeed in our university. With tutors help, students can not only acquire the knowledge which they are required to study at the moment, but also extend their vision to a further place in the professional field. This is why I support having access to the university tutors instead of seeking help from family, friends or high-school teachers.
