Information for Adult Learners
The LCLC offers free instruction in basic, intermediate, and advanced reading, writing, literacy, ESL, and GED skills to our adult neighbors in Rogers Park, Edgewater, and Uptown; adults from other parts of Chicago are also welcome. Our goal is to provide individual assistance to all adults, both native–and non-native speakers of English, who wish to improve their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills in English. Now in its twenty-first year, the LCLC serves a highly diverse community of native–born and foreign–born adult learners. We are open four nights each week during the Spring and Fall semesters. There is no charge for tutoring, and there are no entrance requirements, examinations, or other fees. We do not serve Loyola students who have other resources ( the Writing Center and Tutoring Center ) to assist them.
The LCLC is one of Loyola University's Service Learning projects, sponsored by the Department of English and the College of Arts and Sciences and also supported by the Paul Glassco Endowment. Most of our tutors are Loyola students, some of whom elect to earn course credit for tutoring at the Center as part of an internship. Some volunteers from the Rogers Park neighborhood also tutor at the Center. All tutors receive an orientation to the LCLC and to the practical business of tutoring adults; tutoring is supervised by on-site managers and experienced assistants. Read more
