Welcome to West Coast Global Learner Support!

West Coast Global Learner Support serves all current international and domestic students, scholars, faculty, and staff at Northeastern University-Seattle and the Bay Area. Our services include:

  • ESL Tutoring provides high-quality English language instruction through 50-minute individual and group tutoring appointments. Sessions can focus on academic writing, listening, speaking, reading, presentation skills, and career preparation. Group conversation tutorials focus on a variety of discussion topics. These tutorials will allow you to practice your conversation skills with a tutor and three other students while speaking about higher-level topics in English. 
  • Language and Culture Workshops provide students with the opportunity to explore a variety of topics related to language, academics, and culture. The workshops are led by Northeastern University faculty, staff, and students. Join us as we explore unique topics and learn how language and culture truly impact the student experience!
  • Coding in English sessions feature experienced student and alumni volunteers from Seattle focused on coding, tech interviews, and code walks. Sessions will include both opportunities to observe and collaborate with students based in Boston, Silicon Valley, and Seattle!
