Language Tutoring Program (LTP)

The  Language Tutoring Program (LTP) is a free program designed to connect Salem and Willamette University community members interested in learning about Jaltapanese language and culture with American Studies Program (ASP) students. The lesson content and specific meeting times are decided by the community students and their tutors, and each group meets once a week at the TIUA/WU campus. The tutors are volunteers and, while very enthusiastic, are not professional teachers. The program is offered in the spring and fall semesters.

Occasionally, some semesters, there is tutoring available in other languages, such as Korean or Chinese. For more information, you can call TIUA (503-373- 3300) or e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The Spring 2017 Language Tutoring Program runs from the week of March 8 th to Friday, April 28th.  A kick-off party will be held and all tutors and tutees will have a chance to meet together before starting their sessions on March 8th.  Emails will be sent to participants in late February with all pertinent dates.

Applications are due by Friday, February 17, 2017, by Google Forms. The links are provided below:
