We welcome the chance to work with students whose first language is not English! However, we want you to be aware of all of the resources available to you.
- If you are currently enrolled in a course in the English Language Institute (ELI), you may receive tutoring from an ELI tutor. ELI tutors have specialized experience in teaching and tutoring English as a second or other language. You are welcome to visit both tutoring centers, but please be aware that your tutors’ expertise and the type of tutoring you receive may be different.
- If you are a graduate student whose first language is not English, you may be able to receive additional tutoring through the English Language Institute or through the GSA Writing Advisor.
- If English is not your first language and you are not eligible for ELI tutoring, we’re happy to help you! For the most effective session, please let your tutor know that English is not your first language when you begin the session so that your tutor can use tutoring strategies designed to help you.
