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 4 internship focuses on professionalism, national organizations, and membership in the TESOL International Association (fees may apply). Due to accreditation requirements, tutoring must occur in real time, whether in-person or online. The forty hours may not be fulfilled by peer interactions, role playing, or other simulations.
Note: Due to accreditation requirements, tutoring must be face-to-face. The forty hours may not be fulfilled by peer interactions or simulations. Level 4 tutorials may include online face-to-face interactions.
