Introduction to tutoring :

Tutors are Licence 3, Master or Doctorat students who provide tutoring sessions (1h30 per week) in language and/or civilization: their aim is to build students' confidence while giving them personalized support according to the linguistic or methodological difficulties encountered in their course of study.

There are two types of pedagogical tutoring:

language tutoring, which is designed to help students who are experiencing difficulties in the oral and written practice of the language they are studying;

civilization tutoring, which, for its part, makes it possible to rework civilization courses (history, geography, anthropology, etc.) from the geographical area studied.In 2023-2024, tutoring is available in the following departments: Africa Indian Ocean (AOI), Southeast Asia Pacific (ASE-P), South Asia and Himalayas (ASU-H), Arabic Studies, Chinese Studies, Korean Studies, Hebrew Studies, Japanese Studies, Russian Studies, Eurasia, Europe, International Relations.

Testimony of a language tutor

Hajar, who was a language tutor for several years, tells us what tutoring at Inalco is all about

Tutoring sessions are support classes given by Master's or PhD students. They are intended for first- and second-year students who have difficulty understanding the topics covered in language and/or civilization classes, and who wish to work on them in a smaller group. More specifically, for L1 + and Tempo students, tutorials are part of the personalized support module of their program.

Registering for a tutorial means first of all finding out whether the language you are studying offers tutoring sessions. To find out, contact your department or a language or civilization teacher. Once you've registered, you'll be able to check the start date and times of the tutoring sessions on the course schedule.

In language tutoring, tutors are committed to supporting students in both the written and spoken practice of the language. Depending on the difficulties encountered by students, tutors can suggest different fun activities, answer individual questions and review points seen in class.

Testimony of a civilization tutor

Adelaide, civilization tutor, explains the distinction between language tutoring and civilization tutoring, the organization of tutoring sessions, as well as the benefits they bring.

Tutorials are tutoring sessions, designed for students who wish to review in small groups the points covered in class. There are two types of tutoring:
-language tutoring, which is designed to help students who are experiencing difficulties in oral and written language practice; -civilization tutoring, which enables students to review the history, geography, anthropology, etc., of the geographical area being studied.

The organization of these work sessions is based primarily on specific student requests. Tutors are available to answer any questions and provide real support to students, particularly in the run-up to exams.

Tutoring is therefore a key advantage for student volunteers. With a small group size of no more than 10 students, everyone can benefit from more personalized support. These hours in a small group are also an opportunity to exchange ideas and more easily discuss the difficulties that each student may be facing in his or her course.
