ABSTRACT
This paper's primary aim is to see how the struggling learners are equally coping up with the regular classes learners and even doing better after getting constant feedback after attending the tutorial session once in a week. At the end of the semester one set of questionnaire was given to them to get their response on the effectiveness of the tutorial session. The result is positive in fact motivating for the researchers as they constantly work on improving students' language skills.
