The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is pleased to announce that we have Undergraduate Course Assistants: Hyojin Lee (intermediate and advanced Spanish), and Erica de Lacerda (elementary Spanish and Portuguese).
Hyojin, and Erica will be assisting the Language Programs in various ways. Among other things, they will be available to meet with students who have been recommended by their instructor, as well as those interested in some aspect of the language they are studying beyond the classroom setting.
If you are currently enrolled in one of our Department's courses and would like to schedule a session with either Hyojin (intermediate and advanced Spanish) or Erica (elementary Spanish and Portuguese), you may do so by signing up in their WASE calendars (go to "Make appointment" and search for their names).
Sessions are typically 1-on-1 and last 60 minutes, but 30 minutes sessions and small-group sessions (with 2 or 3 students) can also be arranged. The only requirement is that you sign up for a session at least one day in advance. After signing up, you will be asked to complete this short survey so that we learn more about your specific needs for the session.
Note that the Spanish and Portuguese language tutoring that was offered at the residential colleges is no longer available. These services will now be provided jointly by our Undergraduate Course Assistants.
If you have questions about our language tutoring sessions, please contact Catalina Méndez Vallejo. We hope you will take advantage of this valuable opportunity.
