Spring 2014 Tutoring Hours

Speech and Interpretation Wizard Schedule

Tutoring is done by students who have successfully completed Fundamentals of Speech Communication, Critical Thinking and Small Groups, Introduction to Argumentation, or Critical Listening and Thinking. Tutors work one-on-one with students from those classes who want help learning the concepts, studying for exams, or preparing speaking assignments. Tutoring not only helps you learn to work individually with people to improve their performances, but also demonstrates your willingness to be of service to others.

To become a tutor you must discuss your interests and qualifications with James Floss in House 54 Room 5 and enroll in SC 495: Field Experience, which can be repeated.
