The English Skills Center in Saint Louis was established to provide specialized, rigorous courses for anyone who is in need of acquiring English skills. Our classes are tailored to meet individual needs that can prepare students for success academically, occupationally, or in daily life. In addition, our program is designed to focus on all of the areas of language; grammar, reading, writing, listening, speaking, and accent reduction. In order to promote more meaningful language learning, all of our courses will consist of a cultural component because daily language also consists of cultural cues and insights.


With all of our instructors being bilingual or trilingual, we are able to meet the challenge of serving a diverse population. Currently, we have instructors who speak Portuguese, Spanish, French, German, and Bosnian. Furthermore, all of our instructors are able to provide the highest quality of instruction because all have a Master’s Degree in Teaching English as a Second Language,  two are Doctoral Candidates, and all instuctors have experience teaching at a university level.

These standards for our organization and our instructors set The English Skills Center apart from other independent organizations teaching English. We invite you to learn more about us.
