Department of Languages Tutoring

Students enrolled in language classes offered through the Department of Languages at UAA pay a lab fee, which is used to hire language tutors. Anyone enrolled in a Department of Languages class (ASL, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Russian, or Spanish) on the Anchorage campus can utilize the Center for Language Learning during tutoring hours for that language. Tutoring in the Center for Language Learning is offered on a walk-in basis. We do not offer tutoring to students not enrolled in UAA Language classes. Please check the schedule of your tutor(s) as tutoring hours and language availability may change throughout the semester.

Students should not use the Center for Language Learning as a study space when tutoring hours are not in session. This space should only be utilized while working with a tutor. 

Students who are enrolled in Eagle River language classes and are seeking tutoring should contact the Eagle River campus.

English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring is not part of the services offered by the Center for Language Learning. Multilingual students are welcome to visit the Writing Center for assistance with their English language assignments.
