Language Tutoring

The CLS offers language tutoring for Yale students.  Undergraduate students enrolled in language classes during the academic year can request free one-on-one tutoring with a CLS Tutor. Any Yale student - whether undergraduate, graduate, or professional - can attend free weekly Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish tutoring drop-in sessions. 

Tutoring with a CLS Tutor

Yale undergraduate students enrolled in a language course may request a CLS Tutor. This tutoring is available for up to ten hours per semester. To get things started, complete and submit a Request for Tutoring (Note: you must be on the Yale network to connect to this link or, if you are not on campus, use a secure VPN connection the software for which can be downloaded here: https://software.yale.edu/software/cisco-vpn-anyconnect).

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.
