The English Tutoring Center (ETC) provides academic support to undergraduate students enrolled in English composition, reading, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses. Working one-on-one with tutors, students learn and practice the writing, reading and proofreading strategies necessary for critical, college-level writing. By enrolling in English 112, Reading and Writing Techniques, students receive one unit of credit for meeting with their tutors weekly for one semester.
To be eligible for tutoring services at the ETC, you must be enrolled in an English composition, reading or ESL course (see Tutoring Services). Please check the drop-in bulletin board in HUM 290 for current drop-in hours. For information regarding other drop-in tutoring centers on campus, please refer to the Learning Assistance Center (LAC) or the Campus Academic Resource Program (CARP). If you want to volunteer as a TUTOR, please refer to Tutoring Services.
Our tutor, Richard Walker, kept a blog Spring 2010 recording his experiences in tutoring. In it, he states: "I would like it if my comments would spur exchanges with other tutors, or inspire others to blog. I recommend it. As a tutor, I need a good excuse for self-reflection. And I need to practice writing!" Check out Richard's blog!
