Language and Orientation Tutoring
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
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.
