The English as a Second Language/English Language Learners Specialist provides writing assistance to international and domestic students who have learned English as a Second Language and are improving their English writing skills as they write academic papers.

Sometimes ESL/ELL students also have questions about non-writing assignments or other academic work. Any student interested in hearing more about our ESL/ELL support is welcome to set an appointment to find out more.

Schedule an Appointment

ESL/ELL students are encouraged to schedule face-to-face appointments to discuss various steps in the writing process, including brainstorming, outlining, and proofreading drafts for grammar usage issues, such as word form or subject-verb agreement errors. Meetings also include discussion of proper in-text citations aligned with course requirements.

The ESL/ELL Specialist strives to support ESL/ELL students who are not familiar with academic writing conventions or professor's expectations for writing assignments as detailed in the course syllabus.
