Hi everyone, it’s nice to meet you! My name is Rachel Cristofoli, and I’m eager to get to know you all through the English Language Peer Support (ELPS) program. I am a Schulich MBA and Osgoode Hall Law School JD student.

Growing up, I struggled with editing my assignments, and my 8th-grade teacher taught me an invaluable trick: to read my completed projects from the end of the paper to the beginning. Reading ‘backwards’ allowed me to pick up on mistakes I would’ve otherwise glossed over.

I understand that studying a second language can be anxiety-inducing and intimidating. Trust me; I’ve been there! Together with dedication and practice, we can facilitate a smooth transition into your program. As an English language peer supporter, I aim to enhance your English proficiency in oral presentations, writing and, of course, editing skills!

I am excited to be a part of your Schulich journey!
