Spoken English Language Tutoring

Learn about the SELPers, peer tutors from our Spoken English Language Program. SELPers meet individually with CWRU undergraduate, graduate and professional students, for up to an hour a week, throughout the week. Many of them are working on degrees in English, while some of them have backgrounds in technical communication or have science or engineering majors - but no matter what kind of educational focus they are working in, they all have been trained to help you with your spoken English needs!
