At least some of the people at the Tutoring and Learning Center on campus were in the Halloween spirit even a day early, in this case, on Wednesday, Oct. 30.
We found this particular individual — in real life, we’re told, she’s a student chemistry tutor — hanging around the office on the first floor of the Cofrin Library.
Our friends in the International Center are taking this opportunity, with the start of the second semester, to remind all on campus that international students occasionally face challenges in UW-Green Bay courses due to unfamiliarity with U.S. teaching methods or complexity of the English language. Any instructor who believes an international student’s academic progress might benefit from English as a Second language support is encouraged to refer the individual to Tutoring Services (CL 102,extension 2958).
The Tutoring & Learning Center and the Office of International Education have teamed up to create a new weekly discussion group for international students. This is an open, and casual discussion group that will meet weekly with the goal of encouraging connections, increasing conversation skills and discussing a variety of dynamic topics. The Cultural Sharing Discussion Group will meet at 3 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Sept. 18, in the Office of International Education. If you have questions please contact Mark Fischer (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the Tutoring & Learning Center or Kristy Aoki (email@example.com) from the Office of International Education.
