Language Exchange Program

The Language Exchange Program provides a free, flexible, and fun-filled way for Cal students, international and domestic, to meet and share their language skills. The program emphasizes mutual exchange by all participants so you will have the opportunity to learn and teach a language. Participants will be grouped and/or paired with a proficient speaker of the language they are interested in practicing.

Drop-In Tutoring is available and free for all students enrolled in Summer Session courses. Drop-In Tutoring is a collaborative space designed to encourage students’ work in groups with a tutor as a guide on problem sets, concepts, or anything related to the material in their courses. The tutors may provide a conceptual framework on a given concept or create parallel problems to assess and develop content mastery.

During the summer, tutoring begins on the first Wednesday of Session C and during the last week of Session C. We are located in the southwest corner of the Chavez Atrium located in the Chavez Student Center on Lower Sproul Plaza. If you are interested in our services just sign in to the Drop-In computer using your SID (Student Identification Number).

Drop-In Tutoring is provided for the following courses: Math 1AB, 16AB, 32, 53, 54, 55 and Stat 2, 20, W21, 131, 134. If you are enrolled in a course not on the above list and still want to receive support you are welcome to sign in as “Other Math” or “Other Stat” as appropriate and there may be a tutor available to work with you. Be sure to let the senior tutor know which course are interested in working on and we will assess how we can best support you.

Writing

  • Appointment Tutoring: Writers can schedule a 50-minute appointment in advance to discuss their work with a tutor. This format is ideal for writers who wish to explore in depth specific tools to solidify their ideas and refine their prose. 
  • Weekly Tutoring: Writers can sign up to work with the same tutor up to twice a week to master the fundamentals of academic writing. This format is highly recommended for writers taking R&C courses and ideal for writers who are new to American academic writing conventions.
  • Topical writing workshops: Our workshops offer a supportive, inclusive learning space for writers to further develop and strengthen their academic voice. Led by professional staff in small-group settings, writers will practice key elements of college writing and acquire a clear understanding of academic conventions and expectations at Cal.
