Loyola’s ESL program

ELLP Faculty and Staff

‌‌‌‌Loyola University Chicago's ELLP Program faculty members are first-rate language instructors with extensive experience teaching English to speakers of other languages. All of our faculty members have an advanced degree in TESOL or a related field, and most have lived and worked in other countries.

The small size of the ELLP Program permits close communication between faculty and students, allowing English learners to get the individual attention and assistance they need. Our students consistently mention this personalized touch as one of the most attractive and important features of the program.
