English Tutoring Services
Fall 2011 marked the beginning of a relationship between the English Clinic and the American Corner. ALHOSN’s English Clinic is a peer tutoring center specializing in writing and literacy development. The English Clinic offers a wide variety of services to help foster the following skills: Reading, Writing, Communication, Skills, and Extra-Curricular Activity Engagement. The English Clinic office is located next to the reception in both the male and female campuses.
In October, tutors became available in the American Corner at selected timings to help provide English services for the community at large. In addition, a special extensive reading collection of English graded readers, children’s books, and literature has been added to the American Corner library. Student tutors will be available in the American Corner to provide English literacy services to the community with this ever-expanding collection and will promote the reading of these books during the ALHOSN's 2nd Annual Readers Cup reading competition.
