CALS Project: A Basic Skills Tutoring Program for Staff
The CALS Project is a confidential, one-to-one and small group tutoring program for UC Berkeley employees who want to improve their writing, speaking/pronunciation, reading or basic math skills.
Why was the CALS Project created?
Research demonstrates that the level of basic skills needed in the workplace will continue to rise. In the current economy, UC Berkeley is beginning to extend new decision-making authority to staff. Staff members need stronger basic skills to meet these challenges and to allow them more flexibility within a leaner workforce.
Who can receive tutoring?
All UC Berkeley employees qualify for the program. Tutoring is available to both native-born English speakers and those for whom English is a second language.
How much time is involved?
Tutor/learner pairs meet once or twice a week for one hour. All those involved are asked to commit at least six months to the program.
How much does tutoring cost?
The CALS Project is free to all participants.
