Tutoring English Language Learners

As mentioned throughout this guide, CCNY’s diversity is one of its greatest strengths, and it is often reflected in the writing of the students we see at the Writing Center. While some tutors will have worked with English language learners (ELLs) before, for others, this may be a new experience. For everyone, though, developing a set of skills for helping ELL students is an important element of tutoring here.
