ASC: Supports for Students - English as an Additional Language Centre

What is EAL Tutoring?

If English is your second or additional language, EAL Tutoring can provide you with excellent ongoing support to develop your reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills for success in your program and industry. Currently, EAL tutoring is delivered online, and you can access up to 90 minutes/week of support for the duration of your academic program.

How can EAL tutors help?

EAL tutors work with you individually to focus on improving the specific language skills and tasks you are struggling with in your program. This includes: 

  • Reading and taking notes more quickly and efficiently 
  • Developing your vocabulary and pronunciation, and learning to use program-specific vocabulary correctly 
  • Participating in class, including asking questions correctly, and answering them effectively 
  • Delivering effective presentations, including organizing your ideas and expressing them clearly 
  • Contributing to group work, including sharing ideas, and solving problems 
  • Strengthening your writing by organizing your ideas, using the writing process, improving your grammar, and expressing your ideas clearly and correctly 

If you are experiencing challenges in your current program because of your language skills (reading, writing, speaking, or listening), and you would like to meet with an EAL tutor on an individual basis, please request an EAL tutor by completing this form
