During individual language appointments, we provide focused support and feedback on a wide range of topics including reading, writing, listening, speaking, and U.S. cultural norms.
There are multiple appointment options for individual support. All appointments are scheduled in Eastern Time (ET).
In-Person Language Appointment (30-60 Minutes): Choose this option to meet with an ELS staff member in person. In-person appointments are held on the 5th Floor of the Sciences Library and will follow protocols outlined in the COVID-19 campus safety policy.
Zoom Language Appointment (30-60 Minutes): Choose this option to schedule a remote video conference via Zoom. An ELS staff member will share the Zoom link to connect to the conference prior to the scheduled time.
- 30-minute appointments can be used for shorter tasks such as email or resume writing, general conversation practice, specific speaking practice such as pronunciation, or questions about other topics and resources.
60-minute appointments can be used for support on longer writing and speaking tasks such as papers or presentations.
- Google Doc Language Appointment (60 Minutes): Choose this option to schedule an online chat appointment via Google Docs for support on any writing task. Please share a Google Doc with the ELS staff member prior to your scheduled appointment. During the appointment time, we will use the Comment and Chat features to conference in real time.
