ESL Tutoring

Professional ESL tutors at the Jefferson University East Falls Campus have specialized knowledge of helping students learn English as a second language.

ESL tutors can help students:

  • Understand an assignment
  • Organize ideas before or during a writing project
  • Clarify English vocabulary
  • Deal with grammar issues
  • Document research papers properly to avoid plagiarism
  • Paraphrase authors' ideas so writing and citations respect academic integrity
  • Prepare and practice oral presentations
  • Practice fluency and improve pronunciation

In addition to professional writing tutoring and oral presentation skills tutoring, peer tutors are available as ESL conversation partners.

Additionally, once a month we hold a Conversations Across Cultures meeting to discuss cultural practices and ways of communicating, all while working on speaking and comprehending spoken English.
