WHAT WOULD I DO IN A TLC?

TLCs are meant to help you support your classroom learning, combine your personal goals with your academic goals, and create a learning community. If you join a TLC, you’ll be paired with 6-15 fellow students and 1 tutor-facilitator from our center. You will work together to decode academic and cultural norms, practice language acquisition, and develop collaboration skills. Your group will meet once a week on zoom for an hour for 7 weeks (weeks of Apr 12-May 24), however, some groups may start earlier depending on how quickly they fill up and can continue meeting after the first week of March if they so desire

 

TLCs can cover many topics, including:

  • Reading difficult course texts
  • Participating in class discussions and activities
  • Understanding assignments/feedback
  • Interpreting classroom and cultural norms
  • Finding support services
  • Professional development (resume, cover letters, etc.)
