Tutoring is a critical component of the Korean Flagship Program that provides students with extra practice and focused, individualized attention. Korean Flagship advisors determine general areas of focus for tutoring (e.g. conversation, academic writing); students decide with their tutors how best to organize their tutoring sessions, based on these general areas of focus, and on their individual interests and needs.
Students meet with their assigned tutors for 2 academic hours (50 minutes) each week, at a mutually convenient time. Depending on a student’s level in Korean, tutoring may take place in small groups, with other Korean Flagship students, or students may have both small-group and individual tutoring. Students are responsible for coming prepared to tutoring sessions with ideas for topics to discuss or aspects of Korean to practice.
All Korean Flagship students participate in at least one hour of individual tutoring per week.
Some students will also participate in small-group tutoring. Groups are organized by level and usually include 3-4 students.
Korean Across the Curriculum
The one-credit Korean Across the Curriculum tutorial for students in 5th-year Korean or above is a type of individual tutoring directly linked to a credit-bearing course or focused on an academic topic of interest, with readings and assignments linked to the syllabus of the course or focused development of subject-area vocabulary and disciplinary expertise.
