Champlain College provides its multilingual learners with English language support to facilitate navigatation of classroom content and encourage participation and confidence in classroom discussions and group projects. Through student-centered learning offered one-on-one, in small groups, and online tutorials, the EL Coach will support success in the four language domains of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
The goal of the EL Coaching program is to reach out to all multilingual members of the Champlain College community, offering them individual and small-group tutorials based on a student-centered model. This model will empower students by strengthening their English language capabilities. Every effort to accommodate the unique needs of each student will be made, and the EL Coach will act as a facilitator for inclusivity by being a consistent contact.
Students may schedule appointments with the EL Coach online and are asked (if possible) to share the nature of their work and/or concerns in advance, so the Coach will know how to best prepare for the meeting.
In addition to working with the EL Coach to acquire greater fluency in the English language, English language learners are also encouraged to work with the Writing Center; the Programming, Accounting, and Math labs; and Academic Coaches to take advantage of the full array of support Champlain provides.
