Peer Tutoring 2019 Fall

2019-10-12

The Center for Language Education will launch the Peer Tutor Program (PTP) in Week 6. It’s a free service open to all SUSTech students.

Through this program, students can receive help/ practice related to English classes and the English language from fellow students around their same age who have excellent English proficiency. Besides, Chinese tutoring is provided to international students. 

The help/ practice includes the four core language skills, grammar & vocabulary, conversational practice, overseas university application advice and any other areas of interest that you may have.
