Tutoring the Refugee Student

Presenter

Oronde Freeman

Clarkston Learning and Tutoring Center, GPC

ESL Instructor, Georgia Piedmont Technical College

 

Description

 

In this session I would like to discuss strategies that I found to be effective for tutoring a special group of ESL students--refugees with their college level writing.  The writing of these students is influenced by cultural characteristics, as well as the unfortunate events of the refugee experience. I'll share some information on the refugee communities I've had the pleasure of working with (in Georgia) and the issues I've observed which hinder successful writing for college assignments.
