Tutoring and Language Support for Drexel International Students

About the Tutoring Service

International students can face unique language challenges as they navigate university life at Drexel. The English Language Center's Tutoring and Language Support office currently offers free, one-on-one tutoring to any Drexel  student for whom English is a second language. Topics include: 

  • Listening
  • Speaking
  • Reading comprehension
  • Writing
  • Vocabulary development
  • Academic study skills
  • Resources for self-study
Students new to the Tutoring program first complete a language support consultation, a 50-minute diagnostic session and interview in which a trained ESL tutor assesses the student's strengths and weaknesses in English. Then, based on the student's needs and goals at Drexel, the tutor can provide a detailed list of support resources and strategies for self-study, and/or recommend ongoing tutoring.

International undergraduate students are eligible for ongoing tutoring; international graduate students are eligible for a diagnostic consultation plus follow-up appointment. The Tutoring center has a list of private ESL tutors if any international graduate student is interested in ongoing tutoring. For more information, please contact Ms. Kirkley Silverman, the Tutoring Program Coordinator, at
