American Culture and English Tutoring (ACE) tutoring is designed to facilitate effective and customized ESL learning by creating independent, student-centered, and self-directed language learning.
Tutoring sessions are typically held in the ALI computer lab in Eicher 206.
ALI students in the beginner to intermediate-high level are assigned an ACE Tutoring class in their schedule. ALI students and their tutors meet twice a week for an hour and 15 minutes on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.
Each ALI student is assigned an ESL tutor. Students select the topics or skills they need to master (or want to study) from a list organized by the tutors and ACE Tutoring supervisor. Tutor assignments are based on students’ needs and tutors' experience. Student and tutor preferences are taken into account whenever possible.
Yes. ACE Tutoring is a required class for students in the beginner to intermediate-high levels of the ALI. It is a different format from other ALI classes and offers an opportunity to get involved with English learning through individualized interactions.
All tutors are current IUP students. Many are graduate students in IUP’s English Department, language majors, and Honors College students. Tutors are highly qualified and have been carefully selected and trained to become ACE tutors by the American Language Institute administration.
