Change in Topics for Session 4 and 5

5– Problems/ Grammar INTL

 

Thursday October 11 CTLR 4:30-6:30
6– INTL /Getting Help/Grammar

 

Thursday October 18 CTLR 4:30-6:30

 

Due to some scheduling conflicts,  Session 5  for Mentors and Peer Writing Tutors will now cover Grammar issues as well as the previously scheduled Problems Students Face training.

Session 6 will now cover Working with International Students  as well as the previously scheduled Getting Help.

 

This change has no impact on new tutors who must attend both sessions, but I want to call it to the attention of those previously trained Peer Writing Tutors and Mentors who can choose between attending sessions 3, 4, or 5.
