Literacy Classes

The Loyola Community Literacy Center is in its 21st year of serving adults in the Chicago area. It is a project of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of English of Loyola University Chicago.

The center offers FREE tutoring to adults in English to those who are interested in developing their English, literacy skills or who are working for their General Education Diploma (GED). While many learners are recent immigrants, the center also caters to international visitors who look to improve their conversation and pronunciation as well as native speakers who are improving their skills.

The center provides one-on-one tutoring during the fall and spring semesters in a supportive, welcoming environment. Tutors are Loyola students and several volunteers from the community.

The Community Literacy Center is located on the Lake Shore Campus of Loyola University Chicago in Loyola Hall, 2nd Floor, 1110 W Loyola Avenue (1/2 block east of Sheridan, toward the lake).

Community members are encouraged to refer adults in the community who may benefit from English language skill development services. Once they register, a staff member will find a tutor who will be happy to serve them.
