skills, work on writing abstracts or grant proposals with your tutor's
assistance, ask questions about American university culture, etc.

group consisting of three tutees and one highly qualified tutor for one hour
per week for the duration of Autumn Quarter at no cost to yourself. Groups
will meet for the first 9 weeks of the quarter and in the final week
