ESL Success Center: Services to Students

The ESL Study Center offers services and materials, both on-site and online, to assist students with tasks related to writing, speech and grammar. For more information, please refer to the headings and links below.  

On Campus Services


ESL Study Center computers are available to AVC students who wish to use the Internet (including our Online Materials page), do word processing, and explore programs designed to help them improve their English Skills. Our computers are available during our Desk Hours. No appointment is necessary. For more information, please visit or contact us.

Note: We regret that we are not permitted to provide instruction in basic computer and word processing skills. Students must already possess these skills if they wish to use our computers.



The ESL Study Center offers many handouts to assist students in their study of the English language. You may obtain handouts during our
Desk Hours.

In addition, you may view and download a large number of handouts, as well as many other useful items, by following the links on our
Online Materials page.



ESL Study Center tutors are available during varying hours to assist you with tasks related to any of your AVC classes. Generally, tutorials last a maximum of 30 minutes, and you are allowed up to 2 tutorials per week (no more than one per day). These restrictions enable our tutors to serve as many students as they can while providing each student with an appropriate level of assistance.

You may work with a tutor by making an appointment or by dropping in. No matter which approach you choose, you'll want to be prepared to get the most from your tutorial.



The ESL Study Center offers workshops on a number of useful topics. Please refer to our Workshop Schedule. Workshop schedules for the ESL Study Center and other departments are also available at the Writing Center desk and throughout the Learning Center. Our workshops are free and do not require advance registration; however, you must be currently enrolled at AVC to attend them. For more information, please contact us.

Students who are unable to attend our workshops may wish to explore the online resources available through our Online Materials page. These include handouts, sample papers, and PowerPoint presentations on topics related to research, writing, and grammar.
