Questions about ESL Tutoring Services

Who can participate in tutoring services?

Any currently enrolled UMass Amherst student (graduate, undergraduate and UWW), visiting scholar or international instructor who has learned English as an additional language.

What will the tutors help you with?

Any aspect of your English. This includes speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar, or vocabulary. If you need help with a certain assignment, just remember to bring in any papers or documents related to that assignment. Tutors can also help you review English language aspects of any assignment or exam that has previously been graded. 

What will the tutors NOT help you with?

The tutors will not correct grammar mistakes in written work, nor will they complete any assignments for you.  

How can you prepare for tutoring?

In order to prepare for tutoring, please bring in any assignments, task descriptions, or just a general idea of what you would like to work on with your tutor. For example, if you have difficulty following your professor’s lectures, come in and inform the tutor that you need help with listening to lectures. The tutor will teach you some techniques and provide you with practice activities to help you develop your skills.

How frequently can you use the tutoring services?

Currently, there is no limit on individual appointments.
