Need help with your EAP course assignments? Visit the EAP Lab!

What is the EAP Lab? The EAP Lab provides one-to-one tutoring and language learning assistance to students enrolled in all EAP (English for Art Purposes) courses (ESL 1/601 – ESL 4/604, ESL 490/690, ESL 20/610) and LA 103/LA 106.

Who can visit? The lab is only open to students enrolled in an EAP course or LA 103/LA 106. Students are not required to go, but teachers can (and should) recommend that they go. Students enrolled in ESL 605 can visit the lab with consent of their instructor.

Students enrolled in LA 108 or higher may not attend the lab, but they can go to the Speaking Lab or the Writing Lab.

Also, we do not offer tutoring to students in the school's Intensive English Program.

What can students get help with?
Tutors work with EAP students only on their EAP course assignments and homework.

Students may get help on the following EAP coursework areas:

  • Grammar
  • Writing
  • EAP homework assignments
  • Preparing presentations and interviews
  • Vocabulary building
  • Readings
  • Study skills
Please note: The tutors do not help students with their art class coursework. Students needing help with their art coursework should go to ARC Training and Tutoring. Students needing help with their Midpoint Review should go to the Midpoint Review Lab.

Sessions with EAP Lab tutors are fifty (50) minutes long.

Where is it? The EAP Lab is on the third floor of 79 New Montgomery, Room 316.

When is it open? The EAP Lab is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m.

Who are the EAP Lab tutors? The EAP Lab tutors are all experienced EAP teachers, both full-time and part-time ESL faculty. All tutors must be teaching an EAP course in order to work in the lab. 

How can students go to the EAP Lab? Students can make an appointment through Tutor Trac or can drop in if a tutor is available.
