The English Language Resource Center (ELRC) provides opportunities for students who speak English as a second language to advance their linguistic skills.
The mission of the Center is to help students reach their maximum potential by providing individualized support aimed at developing writing, speaking, and critical reading skills. To this end, the ELRC provides one-on-one tutoring to multilingual students and hosts community programming, including panel discussions and workshops, on topics related to language development.
Students can make an appointment to meet with Melanie Yalcinkaya, ELRC Coordinator, or with one of the ELRC peer tutors.
Coaching sessions with the ELRC Coordinator **
Meet with Melanie to get feedback on assignments, discuss strategies to advance language skills and address any concerns about language use in or outside of the classroom. Melanie is available to work with students on a variety of topics, including but not limited to grammar, academic and technical vocabulary development, pronunciation, and reading comprehension, as well as other aspects of oral and written expression.
