Who We Are

Since 1998, ETP’s experienced, caring teachers have helped almost 2000 children from immigrant and refugee families from at least 30 different countries of origin learn standard English.

  • At the students’ schools
  • At no cost to their immigrant families
  • At no cost to the school

Grounded in Catholic tradition and social teachings, the English Tutoring Project (ETP) provides on-site assistance to children from refugee and immigrant families to acquire English language skills in an environment where all children experience respect for themselves and their culture. ETP is an initiative of the St. Louis Area Women Religious Collaborative Ministries.

The English Tutoring Project is a nonprofit group, begun to help children from immigrant and refugee families to learn English
