Do you find Americans asking you to repeat yourself often? Do you need extra practice with your English skills? The English Language Learning and Assessment Lab—ELLA—is where international students and scholars can get personalized, professional tutoring help in all areas of English.

To join ELLA, students complete an application, submit their official course schedule, and choose their curriculum path: speaking and fluency, writing style and structure, or presentation skills. The tutors then guide the students through their personal curriculum throughout the semester, using written and recorded materials as well as interactive software. The professional language tutors—all of whom hold Master’s degrees in TESOL or a related field—work one-on-one with the students to guide them through their learning and help them achieve their personal learning goals. Students also participate in group seminars during the semester to practice their skills with ICAPE faculty and students.
