  • Supplemental instruction
  • Workshops for students and faculty
  • One-unit refresher courses
  • Orientations
  • Consultations for faculty

The English Center is dedicated to providing innovation in tutoring strategies, pedagogy, and quality training in all areas of tutoring, as well as ongoing collaboration with faculty, staff, administration, and other tutorial/learning centers.

New Announcement

The English Center is pleased to announce the addition of the ESOL Lab on the San Diego City College campus. Located in AH-206, this new service offers support in English as a Second Language (ESOL) skills and basic writing skills. There will also be open lab hours when students can use special software to practice speaking, listening, grammar, reading, and writing; read ESOL newspapers, or use the pay-for-print system.
