Language Tutoring

The Language Lab offers free assistance to all GCC students currently enrolled in a Spanish or French course.

Tutoring is available BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Appointments take place in the Language Lab during Open Lab Hours.

To schedule an appointment, contact Tara Donohue, Lab Coordinator, ext. 6470.

Tutoring in Reading and ESL is available through the Center for Academic Progress. The CAP is located on the 2nd floor in the D building. Spanish and French tutoring available by appointment only.

The following guidelines should be understood prior to signing up for tutoring sessions:

  • You may sign up for half hour or one hour sessions with a maximum of 3 hours per week. To ensure that a tutor is available and a convenient time is scheduled, you must sign up at least 24 hours in advance. A Tutor Request Form must be completed the first time you sign up for tutoring each semester. Forms are available in the Language Lab.
  • Please come to your session prepared - have course materials, assignments and questions ready for your tutor.
  • "No Shows" are taken seriously. Missed appointments may result in the loss of tutoring privileges for the remainder of the semester. If you need to cancel an appointment, please stop by the Language Lab or contact the Lab Coordinator at least one day in advance.
  • If a tutor does not have a scheduled appointment, they will be available to accommodate "drop-ins" and assist students with language assignments and questions during Open Lab Hours. However, precedence is always given to the students who reserve tutoring sessions.
