We have:

  • 6 levels of instruction, beginning to advanced
  • 20-25 hours of class per week
  • 12 students in an average class
  • 120-150 students each session
  • Special topic elective class week each session
  • Designated computer laboratories with ESL software

To help with university admission, each session, we offer:

  • The Institutional Testing Program (ITP) TOEFL
  • College admission seminars
  • Counseling and assistance with university admissions

We encourage our students to work closely together, to learn from each other, and to develop cultural awareness. In our classes, students participate actively, and they develop all language skills through a variety of materials and projects.

We offer a challenging curriculum to our students. We also challenge our students with regular homework. Our students often watch television, read the newspaper, or interview a neighbor as part of this homework.

Each session, we have special activities such as field trips and social events. Our students work hard, but they also enjoy their time at the Tutorium.

We have computer classrooms, and we offer additional study hours with a Tutorium teacher in the computer laboratory.

Applying to the Tutorium
