English Language Resources

English Language Resources appointments provide extended writing consultation time with a focus on helping English language learners become stronger, more confident writers.

To schedule an ELR consultation, please visit our self-scheduling appointment system, stop by the Writing Center or call (804) 828-4851. Make sure you specify that you want an ELR appointment.

Language acquisition, especially to the point of writing fluency, is an ongoing process. To help create a semester-long conversation about language and writing, we expect students to have:

  • Regular appointments throughout the semester
  • Appointments with the same consultant
  • A commitment to the full writing process

Meeting with a consultant on a regular basis will improve your writing process and strengthen your overall language skills.
