Andrew Grace, Gustavus’ ELL (English Language Learners) Tutor, works with the Writing Center and the Diversity Center to provide extra assistance for multilingual students struggling with language issues. He is happy to assist students at any point in the writing process, including comprehending the texts they’ve read, understanding the assignment, planning drafts, and revising and editing papers.
Andrew has the following office hours: Sunday 6:00 -10:00 pm (Vickner 312) Monday 12:30 -2:30 pm (Vickner 312) Tuesday 10:30 am -2:30 pm (Vickner 312) Wednesday 10:00 am — 2:30 pm (Diversity Center) Thursday 6:00 -10:00 pm (Vickner 312)
Students can ‘walk in’ for assistance during office hours, make an appointment with Andrew via e-mail or schedule appointments through the Writing Center’s website. He is happy to schedule meetings outside of these hours if scheduled via e-mail in advance. His schedule is available via the WCOnline scheduler.
Andrew is happy to visit classes, especially First Term Seminars, upon invitation and explain his role to students. He is also willing to talk with faculty and provide feedback on assignment prompts.
