International Student Resources

International Tutoring Center

  • ESL Tutoring – Tutors provide high quality ESL writing instruction and tutoring for international students who need assistance with papers, assignments, TOEFL writing, and research projects. Students can meet one-on-one with an ESL tutor for 50-minute appointments.
  • Pronunciation Workshops – Workshops focus on aspects of speaking English as a second language: pronunciations of individual sounds, word stress, intonation, and how each contributes to being understood in conversations, discussions, and presentations.
  • TOEFL Preparation Workshops – This workshop series will address ways to improve the speaking and writing sections of the TOEFL iBT exam. The workshops also provide students with test-taking strategies and teach general skills to strengthen students’ English language proficiency.

Language and Culture Workshops – The language workshops are for international students looking to improve their reading, writing, and listening skills. The culture workshops help international students understand American culture better and operation more successfully as university students in the U.S.

Volunteer Team Leader (VTL) Program – Students provide community service while strengthening their leadership skills, building resume experience, and improving their English skills. To date, the VTL program supports 35 organizations and has over 2,000 hours of volunteered service.

Listening & Speaking Classes – These classes provide listening and speaking practice for students to improve their pronunciation, listening, and speaking skills. Each class (general practice and business case) meets two times a week during the CPS quarter. Students must register; classes do not carry academic credit.
