Saddleback College Adult Education has partnered with the Saddleback College Tutoring Center to provide tutoring services at both Mission Viejo and San Juan Capistrano Adult Education sites. ESL tutors, which also include AESL faculty, are provided by the College Tutoring Center. Tutoring assistance includes: vocabulary; spelling; pronunciation; grammar; writing; reading; conversation; life skills; test preparation; test review; and citizenship.
The AESL Tutoring program is comprised of:
- Tutoring Referral: AESL instructors recommend tutoring by: (a) checking the box on a student’s Registration Placement Form at the same time they are recommending their student’s progression to the next AESL level; (b) filling out the newly developed AESL Referral to English Language Tutoring form.
- Embedded Tutoring: An embedded tutor works directly in the AESL classroom helping students individually or in small groups. An embedded tutor can work in the classroom for up to two hours per week. Embedded tutors may be especially recommended for multi-level classrooms.
- One-On-One Tutoring: Students make appointments to meet with an ESL tutor. Students may take advantage of two 30-minute sessions per week.
- Conversation Groups: Led by trained ESL/AESL faculty.
