Services for International Students

International Student Lab

International Student Lab (ISL) is a peer tutoring service specifically for international students. ISL tutors are students who are specially trained to help with general writing in all subjects, understanding texts, practicing speeches, and so forth

ISL tutors will meet with you at their scheduled times, or by appointment. Please contact the tutor you would like to meet with before you arrive so that a time block can be reserved for you. When you meet with, or contact a tutor for an appointment, please plan ahead and be prepared to explain the task you would like to achieve. For example, specify that you would like to strengthen your thesis statement and introductory paragraph, or review paragraph development throughout your essay, or proofread your essay. This will help your tutor plan for the session, and also ensure that sufficient time is allocated to complete the task.
