Welcome to the ELI Tutoring Blog

"Okay, so..."  My students will recognize that beginning.  What is the ELI?  What is the Tutoring Center?  Why do we have a blog? Are these some of your questions?  Read on...

The English Language Institute (ELI) at the University of Delaware is a CEA-certified Intensive English Program that provides courses in English as a Second Language (ESL) to students from all over the world.  As part of our offerings to our students, we have a Tutoring Center.  All full program ELI students get two hours per week of private tutoring as part of their regular tuition.  During these tutoring sessions, our students can work one-on-one with a trained ESL tutor who can help them with their language learning needs: grammar, pronunciation, reading, writing, vocabulary, speaking, listening comprehension, etc.

This blog is another way that tutors and students can work together.  By adding comments, questions, and posts, we can all create a fun place to use our English skills while we learn.  And who knows, we might even get some people from outside the ELI to join us.  So let's get started.
