Foreign Language Tutoring

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.   

Tutoring with a CLS Tutor

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.

Drop-in Tutoring Sessions

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 2015 will begin the week of January19 (except Arabic, which will begin the week of January 26)  and will run through reading week. All sessions will be held from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in study rooms on the lower level of Bass Library, according to the following schedule:

  • Sundays:  Italian (L34D)
  • Mondays: Arabic (L30A)
  • Mondays: Spanish (L30B)
  • Tuesdays: French (L30A)

Students will meet with tutors on a first come, first served basis.
