Tutoring Information:  

For Fall 2020, advanced juniors and seniors of French, Latin, and Spanish offer tutoring services to all students registered in a foreign language course at South Alabama. There is no charge for tutoring as the costs is covered by student fees. The Foreign Languages tutors hold regularly scheduled office hours to provide extra help and practice. Below you will find information about our tutors and their hours for the current semester. Take advantage of this free service early on, especially if you are having difficulty with some aspect of the language.

Please note that 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. Tutors are not familiar with the technological tools utilized in your courses. Please see your instructor or the publisher for any questions you have about technical aspects of a course or textbook.

We understand that everyone has different circumstances and we can only offer a certain amount of hours and must work around the schedules of our tutors. All of the tutors have some floating hours to meet with students outside of their scheduled tutoring hours. Please, follow the directions below if you need to meet outside the posted tutoring times.
