What is the English for Art Purposes (EAP) Lab?

Get help with your EAP coursework with our EAP Lab, with 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 use the lab?

Students are not required to go, but it is highly recommended that you take advantage of the lab. 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 may visit the Speaking Lab or the Writing Lab. We do not offer tutoring to students in the Intensive English Program.

What can I get help with?

Tutors work with EAP students on their EAP course assignments in areas such as:

  • 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 A.R.C. 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.

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.

The EAP Lab is on the third floor of 79 New Montgomery, Room 316, and is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
