4. Guidelines for using the materials at SALC

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Contact the librarian/SALC staff to create a self-study profile;
  2. Consult tutors/teachers to decide what skill(s) you need to improve;
  3. Choose the file/folder that contains worksheets of the skill(s) you need at your appropriate level;
  4. Take ONLY ONE sheet each time, complete it, and see the tutor for his/her comments or get the answer key to self-correct your selected assignment. You can ask for permission to do it at home and send it back later for the tutor’s comments  if more time is required; and,
  5. Write the score(s) you have achieved in your profile so that tutors can observe your progress.
