      Tutor in the Classroom (TC) Program: Who and what is a TC? 

      A TC is a tutor assigned to specific English and/or AMLA writing courses (with priority given to ENG 68, ENG 1A/80, and AMLA 90 sections). TCs are also known as Supplemental Instructors (SIs) or Embedded Tutors (ETs). They lead group and/or individual sessions inside and outside of class time. Moreover, they provide a collaborative and interactive learning environment where students can improve their understanding of the course through additional practice and reinforcement of class materials. Note: TCs are not guaranteed for all English levels due to budget restrictions.
