Targeted Learning Communities

Are you taking a reading- or writing-intensive class? Is English your second, third, or fourth language? Then consider joining the Targeted Learning Communities (TLC) program.

WHAT IS TLC?

The TLC program aims to support international and multilingual students as they navigate American classrooms and cultures. The program enables small groups of students to meet weekly for an hour with OWRC tutors. Together, they work to decode academic and cultural norms, practice language acquisition, and develop collaboration skills. 

TLCs can cover many topics, including:

SCHEDULE

The official TLC schedule starts from the week of April 12th to May 24th (7 weeks), but groups may start earlier depending on how quickly they fill up and can continue meeting the first week of June if they so desire. In response to COVID-19, all weekly meetings will be held over Zoom.
