Language and Orientation Tutoring Program

Sponsored by the Vice Provost for Graduate Education

Note: This free tutoring service is not part of the EFS Program and is only available for regular Stanford graduate students. Summer visitors, postdocs, undergraduates, and visiting scholars are not eligible. Please see the announcement from the LOT coordinator below.

LOT offers both one-on-one tutoring and conversation group tutoring. A description of the two kinds of tutoring can be found below.

As a participant in one-on-one tutoring, you will be assigned a highly qualified tutor to meet with for one hour per week for the duration of Autumn Quarter at no cost to yourself. You may use this hour to practice your conversation skills, work on writing abstracts or grant proposals with your tutor's assistance, ask questions about American university culture, etc.

As a participant in a LOT conversation group, you will be assigned to a 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 participants will have the option of attending an end-of-quarter mixer for all conversation group participants and tutors. The conversation groups focus primarily on building oral communication skills.

For further information or to be placed on the email list for future announcements, contact the LOT Program Coordinator, Anne Burke.
