We design, organize, and offer credit courses and custom-designed courses to help non-native speakers develop English language proficiency for academic success, career development, and effective communication.

Meet Our Staff

Rosemarie “Rosie” Hughes-Smith is the project coordinator/ESOL tutor and has been with NHTI since 2013. She manages the Conversation Partner Program, in which we pair up second language/culture students in our ESOL program with native-speaking students from other programs. This program offers our ESOL students the ability to practice their English language skills with native speakers, while at the same allowing native speakers to learn about different cultures of the world. She is also co-advisor of the Cultural Exchange Club (CEC), a student-run organization on campus devoted to exploring issues of culture, language, and diversity. It hosts numerous on-campus and community events throughout the academic year.
