1-to-1 Consultations

The English Language Center (ELC) offers 1-to-1 Consultations that are designed to meet the speaking and writing needs of Vanderbilt University students, faculty, and scholars who use English as an additional language. Employees of the Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) are not eligible for consultation sessions.

Due to the varied cultural and linguistic backgrounds of the university’s students, faculty, and scholars, abilities and needs for accomplishing course speaking and writing requirements may vary significantly for those who use English as an additional language from those who use English as a first language. To address these needs, the instructors and consultants at the ELC are well acquainted with typical speaking and writing styles of people who use English as an additional language. Consultations are collaborations between clients and consultants and they provide constructive feedback to help speakers and writers develop strategies for success in the academic context.
