March has quickly approached and we are approximately 3 weeks away from spring break! While that is exciting news, please do not neglect your studies, meaning it is a great time to come and visit the LWC for your upcoming midterms/papers. The Learning & Writing Center is great to refresh material with tutors or to get an extra set of eyes to look over your paper in order to boost your advantage towards a better grade before heading into break. If you would like to schedule a tutor appointment, feel free to go to TutorTrac located on your USF Connect student tab. If you would like to schedule a writing appointment, feel free to stop by or call the center and schedule your appointment with the lovely front desk staff.
More information about some of the great programs that the LWC offers:
1) Academic English Support (AES) tutor – this tutor is a Masters candidate in the TESOL program at the School of Ed — she works with international students (grad and undergrad) on general study skills: note taking, test taking, time management, public speaking, communication with professors, brainstorming for papers (any further help needed with writing should be received through the Writing Center). International students can sign up for an appointment through TutorTrac (https://tutortrac.usfca.edu)
2) English Speaking Buddies for International Students (ESBIS) — this is a drop-in session every Thursday (11:50am-12:40pm) at the Learning & Writing Center that provides international students (grad and undergrad) the opportunity to practice their English in a casual setting. The AES tutor and LWC Assistant Director are present at these weekly drop-in sessions. We talk about current events, any challenges they may be experiencing, hobbies, cultural traditions/events, etc. Come eat snacks and practice your English!
