Medina, Suzanne; Wenzell, Vanessa
MEXTESOL Journal, v20 n1 p23-37 Sum 1996
This article presents a summary and analysis of a year-long project to develop an English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) tutoring lab at California State Dominguez Hills. The project had as its main goal the establishment of a lab specifically targeting the rapidly growing population of non-native speakers of English on campus, and was developed with limited resources. The laboratory set-up, recruitment of tutors and students, tutor training, the systematic approach to academic essay writing used with students, and hours and procedures of lab operation are described. The second part looks at major problems encountered during the project and how they were overcome. These included issues in recruitment of immigrant students for tutoring, evaluation of tutors and learners, tutor training, and lab operations. Program-related forms and tutor guidelines are appended. Contains 10 references. (MSE)
