ESL Program Tutoring
If you are taking ESL courses (Basic A through UCOR 101E and UCOR 102E) we have tutors who can help you. The ESL Program has trained tutors who can help you understand and improve your English skills. Many excellent students have worked with ESL tutors. These students developed their language skills, and they felt more confident in using English. ESL Program tutoring is free.
You can make a tutoring appointment once a week. If you are a student currently taking ESL Program courses, please go to duqesltutoring.appointy.com to make an appointment with an ESL Program tutor.
