Language Tutoring

The Center for Academic Achievement offers a variety of tutoring services for Chinese, French, German, Italian and Spanish courses.Students chatting in the Center for Academic Achievement

Language tutors are students with a language major or minor who have spent at least a semester in a country in which the studied language is predominant. We also hire native speakers who are studying at Susquehanna.

Language tutors help students improve skills by identifying strengths and weaknesses, explaining and demonstrating strategies, and by asking questions that engage students. They do not simply correct students' work; rather, they help students correct their own work.

Our goal is for students to:

  • Develop and gain confidence in the process of learning a language
  • Understand how to prepare for a tutorial
  • Learn to summarize and make sense of assignments
  • Improve critical thinking skills and learn to ask effective questions
