Tutoring | Fall 2014
Rigsby Language and Culture Commons
September 17-December 12 (Closed during fall and Thanksgiving breaks)

Free tutoring is available each semester to USD students enrolled in lower-division language classes as well as upper-division conversation or composition courses.

Want to tutor?

Need a tutor?

Volunteers may opt for 1 unit of credit, which covers 40 minutes per week of tutoring and several mandatory trainings/meetings with faculty along with homework and/or administrative paperwork.

The unit counts as a general elective toward graduation, but does not count toward our majors or minors.

Volunteers must have fulfilled the third semester (Lang 201) core curriculum requirement, whether by completing the class, passing the competency exam exam, or waiver.

Tutors are required to sign in and out each day they work using the computer in the Commons. No one may do this for someone else.

We are no longer accepting applications for spring 2014. Please check back later this semester to apply for fall 2014.


The focus of the tutoring program is on students enrolled at USD in Language 101, 102 and 201. Tutors with advanced skills may also assist students enrolled in 202 and upper-division courses in conversation or composition.

Tutors may not write your papers or oral presentations or do extensive revisions. However, they may assist with:

 — The organization and proofreading of papers you
     have already spell-shecked.
 — Grammatical concepts
 — Vocabulary building
 — Conversation
 — Brain-storming ideas for oral presentations
 — Rehearsing oral presentations

All tutors are available to walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis. appointments aren'T taken. IF A GIVEN TUTOR IS OCCUPIED, YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT 15-20 MINUTES TO BE SEEN.

 — Tutors are only available at the times below.
 — Tutoring takes place in the RLCC (Founders 123).
