One-on-One Tutoring

Each term, free tutoring is available for all students studying in the Intensive English Program. Students may sign up for a 30-minute tutoring appointment to receive help on class assignments or with general questions about English. Typically tutoring runs for eight weeks each term, beginning in the second week of classes. Some common topics are:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking
  • Grammar
  • General Conversation
  • IELTS and TOEFL Preparation
  • American Idioms and Expressions


Free, small-group workshops on a variety of topics are offered on select afternoons throughout the term. These workshops are open to all ELC students, and no advanced sign-up is required.  Information about workshops will be sent via email and announced in classes.
