Overview of services: El Centro de Muchos Colores offers Academic Support services such as Spanish language tutoring, drop-in faculty hours with advising across disciplines, and informal academic coaching by El Centro Coordinator. Spanish tutoring is offered both as drop-in and relationship-based by predominantly native Spanish speakers who are also using El Centro’s tutoring program to assist them with their own language retention.
Eligibility: El Centro’s Spanish tutoring program is available to all students enrolled at Fort Lewis College. To be eligible, students must have and use their FLC e-mail account. For a relationship tutoring assignment, students must maintain their commitment to meet their tutor at the assigned times. If a tutee does not call or show up for two meetings, they are no longer eligible to use relationship tutoring services at El Centro, however they can continue using our drop-in tutoring services as needed.
Availability: El Centro’s Spanish drop-in tutoring is available at least one hour daily from Monday through Friday. Hours vary based on student tutor availability and schedules are available by the second week of each term at our website: www.fortlewis.edu/elcentro, or by stopping by El Centro’s office located on the ground floor of the student union, room #40. For relationship tutoring, students must complete and return our tutor request form, also available in the office or online. Students must not use a relationship tutor for more than two sessions per week. There is no deadline for signing up for tutoring services, however, Spanish tutors are available on a first-come, first-served basis with priority given to those who request earlier in the semester.
