The CLS offers foreign language tutoring for Yale students. Undergraduate students enrolled in foreign language classes can request free one-on-one tutoring with a CLS Tutor. Any Yale student--whether undergraduate, graduate, or professional--can attend free weekly Chinese, French and Spanish tutoring drop-in sessions.
Yale undergraduates whose teachers confirm their enrollment in a language course may request a CLS Tutor. This tutoring is available for up to ten hours per semester (CLS Tutors are paid by Yale College). To get things started, complete and submit a Request for Tutoring.
Before you begin the tutoring process, please read the Guidelines for Tutees of CLS Tutors.
Once you have submitted a Request, the tutoring program coordinator will confirm your eligibility for tutoring and assign an appropriate tutor to you.
All members of the Yale community may take advantage of the CLS' weekly, drop-in tutoring sessions. Drop-in sessions are informal opportunities to practice the language and ask questions about usage.
Drop-in sessions for Spring 2013 will begin the week of January 28 and will run through reading week. All sessions will be held from 7:00pm – 9:00pm at the service desk in the Bass Library Collaborative Learning Center, according to the following schedule:
Students will meet with tutors on a first come, first served basis.
