Conversation Tutoring Program

All lower-division language students are required to attend a group session outside of class for one hour a week for ten weeks. This is not simply a conversation hour; it is a unique opportunity for students to speak the language with more frequency and less anxiety than in a traditional classroom setting.

Peer Tutoring Program

Peer tutors are available to students who need extra one-on-one help in addition to the help they will receive during instructor office hours. Students wishing to take advantage of this service must seek the referral of their instructor.

French and Spanish Peer Tutors

The Learning & Writing Center provides peer tutors for students enrolled in all levels of French and Spanish. This service is free to all USF students and includes individual and group tutoring appointments. Students should consult their instructor first before seeking outside help. For more information, contact the Learning & Writing Center (415-422-6713).

Student Disability Services

Specialized tutors are available for students with learning disabilities enrolled in French and Spanish courses at USF. If you have, or suspect you have, a disability that may require an accommodation, you are encouraged to contact both your instructor and either Student Disability Services at (415) 422-6876, or the Disability Related Services office at (415) 422- 2613 as early as possible in the semester.
