The Less Commonly Taught Languages High School Tutoring Program connects high schools offering less commonly taught languages (languages other than English, French, German, and Spanish) with UW language students who provide tutoring and conversation practice in person or via videoconferencing technology. 

Volunteer tutors are needed for Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian. Prospective tutors should be in 3rd year college study of the language or higher or be a native speaker.  Tutoring shifts are available for the following times (volunteer tutors pick one) in the 2017-18 school year: 

1:50pm-2:42pm (Tuesday-Friday)

2:00pm-2:40pm (Monday-Friday)

Earn valuable experience while putting knowledge of your language to use! 

Prospective tutors can apply by sending a resume and short statement describing their interests and qualifications to Wendy Johnson, Language Institute assistant director.  All volunteers will need to pass a criminal background check.
