About the English Tutoring Center

The English Tutoring Center (ETC) provides academic support to undergraduate students enrolled in English composition, reading, and English as a Second Language (ESL) courses.

The ETC offers two types of tutoring services:

  1. Weekly, one-on-one tutoring, or
  2. Single-session tutoring

Weekly, one-on-one tutoring:

If you are interested in meeting for an hour each week with the same tutor, this is the program for you. By working one-on-one with your tutor, you can learn and practice the writing, reading and proofreading strategies necessary for critical, college-level writing. If you choose this tutoring program, you will be enrolled in one unit of tutoring credit (English 112: Reading and Writing Techniques). This is not another class, but rather one unit of credit for meeting with your tutors weekly for one semester.

Single-Session Tutoring

If you don't think you need to meet with a tutor for an hour each week, you may choose to take advantage of our single-session tutoring program. We offer several hours of single-session tutoring appointments each week. During these appointments, which are 30 minutes long, you can meet with a volunteer graduate student to discuss your English assignment. Please do not expect our tutors to proofread and correct your papers for you. Instead, you should come in with specific questions in mind. Half an hour goes by fast!

Single-Session Tutoring Schedule:

Tuesday: 10:00 - 11:30

Wednesday: 1:00 -3:00

Thursday: 11:00 - 12:00
