  • TUTORING is offered by the department.  The tutors have regularly scheduled office hours to provide extra help and practice.  Please look for posted signs that announce their schedules or click here for the current schedule. Take advantage of this free service early on, especially if you are having difficulty with some aspect of the language.
  • Time is reasonably limited with each student, and if there are several students from the same level, expect to be tutored simultaneously.
  • Students often request proofreading of compositions, and this is an appropriate request.  However, the student must present an already written draft of the composition.  It is not appropriate for the tutor to phrase the composition for the student.  When proofreading, the tutor will not red-line nor correct the individual mistakes that the student has made, but will demonstrate to the student the general areas that need work and where he/she needs to pay more attention to grammar and vocabulary.
  • Most of the workbooks have answer keys available for students to check their own work, so it is not necessary for tutors to check many of the workbook exercises.  However, specific questions about the exercises and/or assistance in understanding assignments are appropriate requests of tutors.

    Tutoring takes place in two locations:  the front lobby of HUMB 337 and in one of the two tutoring rooms located at the next door down.
