The English Language Learning and Assessment Lab (ELLA) offers tutoring, assessment and workshops in English language skills like presentations, conversation, pronunciation, vocabulary development, grammar and writing, listening and note-taking, reading strategies and language test-taking strategies.

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.

Free tutoring sessions are for undergraduate students in a chosen language skill area (e.g., grammar in writing, pronunication, oral presentations, reading skills). Graduate students can have one free tutoring consultation and then are charged fee for service.
