Tutoring and Mentorship Service Learning Opportunity!

Attention Juniors and Seniors!

Gain Experience and Make a Difference

The University of Washington Academic Support Program is offering a service-learning seminar titled "EDUC 401: Tutoring and Mentorship in Higher Education" for Autumn Quarter 2012. This weekly seminar will introduce junior and senior students to a diverse range of tutoring, mentoring, and teaching methodologies. Students will have an opportunity to apply what they learn in class through tutoring and mentoring new transfer, freshman, and sophomore students who are transitioning socially, culturally, and academically to the University of Washington. This is a great opportunity for seasoned students to give back to the University by sharing their knowledge and experience with new students who are working to become independent learners.
