ESL Peer Advisors, Tutors and Computer Lab
ESL Peer Advisors
Peer advisors are students who support ESL students. The ESL Peer Advising for Student Success (PASS) program employs current advanced and former ESL students as peer advisors. These special students understand the challenges of navigating a college system and succeeding in classes. They share their knowledge and experience with ESL students. The PASS office is located in the ESL building.
We have fabulous tutors for ESL students. Most ESL classes have a tutor as a special part of the class community. Students can ask questions and get help from their class tutors on most days that their class meets. In addition, students can make appointments for one-on-one help from tutors. ESL also has a tutoring center. The tutoring center is a place where students can drop in to ask questions, study and complete homework assignments. Tutors are native speakers of English as well as former ESL students.
ESL/SoML Computer Lab
ESL and SoML share a computer lab: one classroom with PCs (H-327) and one classroom with iMacs (H-328A). Teachers take classes to the lab to help students with Canvas, writing papers, doing projects and presentations, and other classwork. All SBCC students can check out a Chromebook for free from the Luria Library for the whole semester.
