Language and Literacy Center Goals

  • Provide students who are learning English with language tutoring and academic support services

  • Collaborate with college faculty to integrate English language learner support into general education and program-area content

  • Encourage interactions among English learners and peers, staff, and faculty to improve student engagement, learning and persistence

  • Facilitate transitions of ELLs from high school or noncredit ESL through credit ESL and developmental coursework to college-level coursework and to their career or transfer programs

  • Increase awareness of the nature of developing bilingualism and multilingualism and equip faculty with instructional techniques to support  learning for students who are in the process of developing academic English proficiency


The Language and Literacy Center offers ESL tutoring, academic coaching, and homework and test-preparation help on a drop-in basis to MCC students who are learning English.   Our resources and services are available to English learners at any level, whether they are enrolled in MCC's credit or non-credit ESL programs or are taking general education or program-area courses. We also consult with faculty on issues related to English language acquisition.
