Language and academic support for international students | CU Boulder Today

The International Student Tutoring Program (ISTP) is back! The program offers individual and group tutoring for international students at CU Boulder, at no extra cost, on issues related to English as a second language and CU’s academic culture.

The topics covered include:

  • Pronunciation
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Conversation skills
  • Grammar
  • Presentation skills
  • Vocabulary
  • Navigating the U.S. classroom

The ISTP aims to offer holistic support to students, so in addition to helping improve language skills, international students can also receive help navigating the unfamiliar aspects of the U.S. school system and life abroad. ISTP tutors are trained in TESOL methods and can also serve as peer mentors and support for students.

The service is open to students at any level and from any background. Tutors can also help make referrals to other campus services as needed.

Students can sign up for a session online.
