About the English-in-Action (EIA) Tutor Program:
the International Center’s English-in-Action (EIA) tutor program matches international students, scholars and spouses with volunteer tutors to help our international visitors with conversational English language skills, simultaneously helping them to acquire a better understanding of American culture and to acclimate more quickly to their new environment.
Our tutors are community members, faculty, staff, and students.
Conversation partners usually meet for 1.5 to 2 hours per week at the International Center or at another location that is convenient for both.
The EIA program is a rewarding learning experience for the international guest and volunteer, as they both gain considerable cultural insight and a deeper understanding and appreciation for diversity.
The EIA Program is currently accepting new participant applications.
