Through bilingual instructions and a variety of tutoring techniques by qualified tutors, students learn to develop confidence, maneuver through the appropriate resources, and exel at practicing the necessary skills, which are essential to student retention.


English Coaching

Location: JSAC 1221

English coaches work with undergraduate and graduate students who want help with all kinds of academic writing, reading and signing. Using English and/or ASL, English Coaches give feedback and offer guidance on coursework, research papers, essays, abstracts, summaries, classroom presentations, book reviews, as well as business writing such as letters, reports, proposals and resumes.

While English coaches do NOT edit or proofread papers, they do make suggestions on how students can make changes to their own writing projects in the areas of organization, grammar, vocabulary and clear communication.

We do not provide feedback on take-home exams.

Walk in hours are available. However, if a paper is longer than four pages, a student may have to make an appointment for English Coaching.

Hours: Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 12 p.m .and 1 p.m. -5:00 p.m. and 6 - 9 p.m. and Friday 9:00 a.m. - 12 pm and 1:00 pm - 4:00 p.m.
