*Tutors will be available to help any undergraduate student enrolled in a course in MLL (at any level). Priority should be given to students in basic language courses (101, 102, 105, 107, 201, 207), but tutors are expected to help those enrolled at any level, time permitting. No student enrolled in any course at any level should ask tutors to revise or correct their work. Rather, students must pose specific questions about specific structures or grammatical points to be addressed by the tutor. 

Tutors offer the following services to students enrolled in levels 101 through 203

  • Answer specific, language-related questions on the first drafts of compositions (peer corrected or instructor corrected at 100 level, only instructors corrected at 200 level), but only after you have already gone through the paper and interpreted the correction code.
  • Answer specific questions about grammar, vocabulary, etc.
  • Provide help with study skills or dictionary skills.
  • Provide conversation practice 

 Note: Tutors must limit their sessions with students to 15 minutes, whenever other students are waiting for help.

Tutors cannot do the following:

  • Translate or write a composition for you
  • Proofread, edit, or correct your work
  • Change the wording of your composition
  • Tell you “what’s wrong with” your composition (if you are completely confused by the correction code and/or comments on a composition, discuss this with your instructor in office hours.)
