ASC: Supports for Students - English Language Centre

What is Short-Term English Language Tutoring?

Short-term English Language Tutoring gives students the opportunity to book directly with an English Language Tutor for support with specific, immediate needs, such as working on an assignment or preparing for a presentation. Sessions are 30-minutes long, and students can book up to two sessions/week.

Students should consider short-term English Language tutoring if they:

  • need support understanding assignment instructions
  • want to practice and receive feedback on an oral-presentation
  • have an assignment due soon, and need support with the writing and editing process
  • feel comfortable using the TracCloud booking system to register for a tutoring session

What to Expect: 

Please bring the following: 

  • Your specific questions and support needs
  • The assignment instructions 
  • Anything you have written or prepared, or would like your tutor to read (this can also include past work or instructor feedback) 
  • Supplies for taking notes 

Short-term tutoring appointments are currently delivered using Webex. Please have your documents, assignment instructions, and any other relevant information available for sharing. Click here for information on how to share content in Webex meetings.   

Please be aware that while we can help you with developing strategies to develop your language skills, we will NOT complete your assignment for you and are NOT a proofreading service.
