Tutoring is offered to a person who, for some reason, does not fit into the regularly scheduled courses. A schedule of dates and times will be agreed upon before classes start. Any change in the agreed-upon schedule must be arranged through the Academic Director, subject to her approval.
Individual attention will be offered for a minimum of two weeks of classes. Most sessions will be held in the afternoon, although some may be scheduled in the morning depending on availability. If you are a Regular Course student, your regular classes will be held in the morning and your tutoring will be given in the afternoon.
Content will be made to fit the need/wishes of the individual.
Because of the missionary nature of the Spanish Language Institute, students enrolled in tutoring should send a letter of reference from your pastor shortly after applying online along with the pre-registration deposit of $10.
