Bring us your work!
Are you writing an academic paper? Preparing for a job interview in English? Seeking practice and feedback on an oral presentation?
EPPIC offers individual consultations (EICs) for international multilingual students, scholars and post-docs to support their growth and confidence in advanced academic and professional English!
All projects and goals are welcome!
Schedule an EIC appointment here.
EPPIC Individual Consultations are offered via Zoom. EICs will be available in summer 2022.
Guidelines for EIC appointments:
- Students and scholars may schedule up to one 45-minute session per day (total).
- A maximum of ten (10) sessions of individual consultations may be scheduled per person each semester.
Before your scheduled appointment, you will receive an email message with instructions on how to connect with your consultant on Zoom, and how to upload related documents or projects in advance of your appointment.
To maximize the value of your consultation, we ask that you come prepared with specific written or speaking assignments, projects, and/or goals. Before your appointment, you will receive an e-mail with directions on how you can upload specific assignments or projects to share with your consultant for review with you during the consultation.
