International Student and Scholar Services

Free ESL Tutoring

English as a Second Language Support Services (ESLS)

ESL Support Services (ESLS) offers free online tutoring services for non-native speakers of English who want to improve their English proficiency. We serve international students, bilinguals born in the U.S., and anyone else who identifies as a non-native speaker of English. Please note that this service is only for current CSU, Chico students and staff. 

We are happy to assist you with:

  • Written assignments at all stages of completion
  • Reading comprehension
  • Oral presentations
  • Scholarship/job/graduate school applications
  • Any other task that requires proficiency in the English language

We also provide a space to practice English conversation skills in a fun, informal and low-stakes environment. 

We will offer in-person tutoring through drop-in visits (no appointments needed!), as well as online tutoring using a variety of platforms (Google doc editing, live Zoom sessions, etc.). For more information and to request ESL tutoring, please visit our website.
