ASC: Supports for Faculty and Staff - English Language Centre

What is English Language Tutoring?

For students who speak English as a second or additional language, English Language Tutoring can provide them with excellent short-term or ongoing support to develop their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills for success in their program and industry. Currently, English Language Tutoring is delivered online, with some limited in-person support opportunities, and you can access up to 60 minutes/week of support for the duration of your academic program.

What are the options for English Language Tutoring?

The English Language Centre is here to support the development of  students' language skills for academic and industry success! We can support students in general with ongoing language skill development, including reading, writing, speaking, and listening, and also for specific support with questions and academic tasks.
