Brandeis University English Language Learning Initiative was founded in the Spring of 2001, to tutor Brandeis dining hall employees in English. Now tutoring services has expanded to include all interested Brandeis employees. Students who tutor need not have any background in teaching English, nor do they need to speak another language. All tutors need is a willingness to help people in their own community, and patience when communicating. Learners come from a variety of backgrounds, languages and levels of English making each tutoring session different.
This is a chartered club. That means that it can use University resources and can request funding from the Finance Board.
