The College of Professional Studies offers several tutoring and language services through their Global Student Success program. Global Student Success is committed to supporting international students in the Northeastern community and promoting internationalization across the institution. Their services include:

  • International Tutoring Center – Tutors provide ESL writing instruction and training 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 (088 Snell Library).
  • Language and Culture Workshops – Geared for international students looking to understand American values, cultures, and norms. These workshops look to bridge cultural knowledge, expand inquiry, and shed light on how to successfully navigate the American university student experience.
  • Pronunciation Workshops – These workshops are for speakers of English as a second language who would like to improve their pronunciation skills. Each workshop is led by a graduate student in Speech-Language Pathology who has knowledge about the specifics of speech production.
  • Volunteer Team Leader (VTL) Program – This program allows for English skill development while concurrently building resume experience, leadership skills, and participating in community service. To date, the VTL program supports 35 organizations and has 1,100 hours of volunteered service.
