Language Tutoring

 Tutoring Schedule - Fall 2021

Tutoring services will be available online this semester to all students enrolled in foreign language courses at Geneseo. Student tutors (members of the various foreign language clubs) provide individual tutoring. Tutoring is available primarily to students enrolled in the Department's 101- and 102-level courses but some tutors can also assist students at the intermediate and advanced levels. See schedule below. 

For questions related to tutoring, please contact Professors Beth Adams (adamse@geneseo.edu) or Elizabeth McManus (mcmanus@geneseo.edu).

Dear Spanish Language Students,
We are pleased to announce this semester’s Spanish tutoring support schedule. Should you need detailed help with concepts, please visit or email your instructor for help. However, if you would like to practice concepts, converse or need extra support, please contact one of the tutors below based on the levels that correspond to the class that you are taking.

How to connect with one of our tutors:

1. Contact the tutor directly by email according to what options might correspond with your mutual availability.
2. Tutoring meetings will be scheduled between the tutor and students and conducted online via Zoom or Google Meet etc unless both you and the tutor arrange in person meetings held in an open area.
3. Tutors will help with vocabulary, speaking practices, explanations of grammar or correction suggestions from edits on papers but will not correct students’ work for classes or do assignments for them.
