The University supports a peer tutoring service for students who feel the need for some help or additional practice. Mrs. D. Marion-Zammetti is the Foreign Language Tutoring Program Coordinator and you should address any questions to her first by calling (717) 872-3526 or by sending her an email at email@example.com.
- If you would like to be assigned a tutor, go to the Foreign Language office (McComsey 239) and fill out the appropriate forms. An upper-level student will be assigned to you, and the two of you can work out a mutually satisfactory schedule or you may be assigned an open tutoring session. The tutor is paid by the University for this work; the service is free to the tutee. Please be conscientious about meeting times, notifying the tutor if you are unable to come, etc. Failure to attend 2 tutoring sessions without a valid excuse will result in automatic loss of tutoring privileges.
- If you would like to BE a tutor, please apply at the Department office. Requirements are a GPA of 2.7 or above overall, 3.0 or above in the language to be tutored; a grade of at least A or B in the course to be tutored, and preferably, upper-level status. You may also apply if you are a native speaker. Your application will then be approved by the appropriate faculty member and you will be contacted concerning your possible tutees. You will be expected to confer occasionally with the tutee's professor as well as the tutoring coordinator as to progress and problems, if any.
