Information for Tutors
Seeking to provide more chances to boost students’ success, the ESL Tutoring Program employs and trains qualified individuals to offer tutorial assistance services in classrooms and in one-on-one and small-group settings, both by appointment and on a walk-in basis. The ultimate goal of the Program is to assist ESL students in becoming confident, independent, and successful learners.
Current Service Area Outcome (SAO)
