About Tutors

Private Tutors
As part of our service to ESL students here at UIUC, we keep a list of approved tutors: people with degrees and/or extensive experience working with ESL learners. The first link below leads to a list of tutors specifically approved for those seeking to pass the English Proficiency Interview (EPI). This test is for those who wish to be TAs at Illinois. The second list of tutors are useful for ESL students looking for tutors on a number of ESL issues.

English Proficiency Interview (EPI) tutors

General ESL Tutors

Interested students must contact the tutors independently of UIUC. Any pay associated with these services is not affiliated with UIUC.

Prospective Tutors: If you wish to be added to the tutors list and offer your services to students, please contact the coordinator, Susan Ahmed, using the contact link on this site.

A note for TAs: you should not tutor a student in the same semester that they are in your class. It poses a conflict of interest. You may however refer interested students to the list.

Writer's Workshop
The Writers Workshop, part of the Center for Writing Studies, provides free writing assistance for University of Illinois students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines and at all stages of the writing process. Discuss your writing with consultants who are experienced writers and teachers of writing. Please see their webpage for more information.
