Graduation requirements this course fulfills

This internship provides students with the opportunity to learn skills and gain experience as an English tutor. Under the direction of a site supervisor at one of our community partner locations, students complete 40 hours of tutoring within the semester. In addition, a faculty director assigns and evaluates short assignments designed to assess the intern¿s learning. The Level 3 Internship focuses on issues of international assessment (such as students preparing for the TOEFL in order to gain admittance to English-speaking universities or on-site rubrics in host countries). Note: Due to accreditation requirements, tutoring must be face-to-face. The forty hours may not be fulfilled by peer interactions or simulations. Level 3 tutorials may include online face-to-face interactions.
