Do you want to improve your English language proficiency skills? The English Language Peer Support (ELPS) program is back for the Summer 2021 term, starting on May 17th!

Join our Peer Supporters for one-to-one English language support for academic assignments.

What is the ELPS Program?

The ELPS program provides all Schulich students with one-to-one online English language assistance on assignments, cases, papers and presentation skills. Students who want support with English proficiency will work together with peer supporters, who will provide feedback on grammar, structure, citations and verbal presentation skills.

Schulich’s English Language Peer Support program is all about students helping students. Our Peer Supporters are Schulich graduate students who are experienced in providing tutoring support and who understand what it takes to meet Schulich’s English language proficiency standards.
