As the course offerings for English 101/31 (our designated course for SIs) expand, we are working to provide the best support possible for everyone.

Highly trained English Center tutors are available to be embedded in your classroom for specific dates and times as requested.  Tutors can assist with a variety of activities including workshops, group work, paper feedback, and more.
