An Examination of Salem-Teikyo University's Conversational Tutoring Program: Perceptions of a Cross-Lingual Tutoring Program.
Ward, Annita Marie
A study investigated the effectiveness of a Salem-Teikyo University (West Virginia) program of English-as-a-Second-Language conversational tutoring for a cohort of 185 Japanese students and a similar but smaller Japanese-as-a-Second-Language tutoring program for the English-speaking cohort. Data were gathered through surveys of faculty (n=4), program participants (n=50), and tutors (n=4) of both groups, and of the ESL director and tutor coordinator. Results indicate that all respondents found the program successful in developing student use of the target languages, establishing bonds between Japanese and American students, and helping Japanese students adjust to campus life.
