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.

As a member of the Language and Orientation Tutoring (LOT) program, you will be assigned a highly qualified tutor to meet with for one hour per week for the duration a quarter at no cost to yourself. You can 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. This service is only available for registered Stanford graduate students. We know that the graduate student life can be hectic, so please only sign up for the program if your schedule will allow you to take full advantage your meetings. LOT also offers small group conversation practice.

The signup form for both individual and group sessions is normally available a few weeks before the quarter begins. Please check back here then for more information.

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