Get Tutoring Help

Students whose home language is not English are invited to take advantage of the free tutorial services offered by our ESOL Center. English and Media Studies Department faculty members who specialize in teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL) provide language support to help students achieve success in their courses across the curriculum.

Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to come for feedback on papers at any stage of their writing process, from the brainstorming to their final draft. It's useful to bring the instructor’s assignment sheet (if there is one); all relevant materials such as their notes; earlier drafts of a paper (especially those that have the instructor’s comments); and/or any source materials (e.g., books or web printouts).

In addition to receiving writing feedback and strategies, students can get help with oral presentations, Power Point slide reviews, pronunciation, and conversation enrichment by scheduling an appointment to work one-on-one with a tutor.


Online appointments can be made up to two weeks in advance. Complete information for scheduling appointments and ESOL Center hours can be found by clicking on the "Schedule an Appointment" button at the top of this page.
