Student: Hi. I need tutoring for my English writing
Me: Ok, well you're in the wrong department, you've got to go to the learning centre
Student: The test centre?
Me: No. The learning centre. It's down inside the library.
Student: Oh at career services?
Me: No. Inside the library. One floor below us.
Student: Oh so on the first floor?
Me: No. We're on the third floor right now. Go to the second floor, go inside the library, walk to the back, and you'll see the learning centre.
Student: Oh ok. So over near the test centre.
Me: Sure. Why not.

Obviously this person also needs help with English comprehension.

Oh god. I just got a job in the tutoring center at my college. I feel your pain.

At least the really stupid ones are weeded out by not being able to find the place though, eh?

Out of curiosity, which department are you in?
29th-Jan-2008 11:36 pm (UTC)
the english department....but still, it's her listening skills that don't leave much to be admired.

The department you're in doesn't make any difference to her stupidity, you clearly said she needed to go to the learning centre. I was just curious. :)

Student: Hi. I need tutoring for my English writing

And English listening and comprehension.

And they let these people into college?

For some reason, the grade schools don't want to lower their standardized test scores any further than they have been lately.
