Hi
My advice would be for tutors to check students' meaning.  Paraphrasing what is written is useful, or asking students to explain what they mean orally.  Often what is written in English is quite (sometimes amazingly) different that the meaning the student thinks they have conveyed.

Subject: academic assistance for exchange students


I have been asked to offer academic support to a small group of exchange students who are enrolled in regular classes on our campus. Do any of you have experience/insight about this population? ...their academic needs? ...words of wisdom/caution?

Thanks-
