English as a Second Language Service
Students at Illinois Wesleyan University come from over 20 different countries around the world, therefore enriching our community with their knowledge and experiences.
As a global language, English is spoken and learned as an additional language in students’ home countries.
In the Writing Center at IWU, we understand that our students’ experiences with the
English language are unique and very diverse, so the Tutoring Service for Multilingual Writers at IWU seeks to help students develop
their cross-cultural knowledge of writing by considering their goals as multilingual
users of English in a North American academic context.
In the Tutoring Service for Multilingual Writers at IWU you can learn and practice writing-related aspects such as word choice, citing your sources, readers’ expectations and much more!
If you have any questions about our services please contact our instructor, Dr. Teodora
The Tutoring Service for Multilingual Writers is located in the Writing Center, Ames

Please email Dr. Nikolova directly at firstname.lastname@example.org when you schedule an appointment on the Writing Center website to receive a Zoom
link for a meeting and to coordinate, reschedule, and confirm appointments. Dr. Nikolova
will do her best to provide flexibility in scheduling appointments outside of the
listed ELL hours to accommodate time difference and other scheduling conflicts. The
best way to communicate is via email to make necessary changes and find times that
work for both the student and instructor.
Note: When you come for an appointment on writing, please bring a printed copy of your draft, assignment instructions, and your instructor's feedback on earlier drafts. For an
appointment on reading, please bring your reading materials with comprehension-related
questions. Feel free to bring relevant and/or assigned readings if you would like
to work on a writing assignment as well.
