Learning ESL With The Best Tutors In Chicago

There are more than 5 million English language learners in the American school system. This means that most of them are kids aged 6 to 11, studying in our primary schools. And life isn’t easy for them.

English as a Second language (ESL) is a program designed specifically for people who don’t primarily speak English at their homes. However, US schools don’t often have proficient ESL teachers that can cater to students' diverse needs.

If the English language is new to you, get a qualified private ESL tutor to help you learn it like a pro.

Superprof offers professional ESL tutors having years of ESL teaching experience. Our tutors deliver thorough ESL lectures and provide unique techniques to help you excel in the language.

Hiring A Superprof ESL Private Tutor in Chicago – Your Best Bet!

The culture of ESL tutoring is rising because schools around the US, including Chicago, lack practical ESL learning opportunities. While there’s been a sharp increase in English language learners, they can’t find resources to help them. That’s because despite being the world’s most widely spoken language, it takes at least 24 weeks of practice to master proficiency in the English language.

You need to work with qualified ESL teachers who understand your needs and help you overcome hurdles you might face as an ESL student. To help you out, Superprof offers qualified and experienced private ESL tutors that can keep your ESL learning experience engaging and motivated.

Here’s how Superprof ESL private tutors in Chicago can help your child gain English language frequency in a quick, meaningful way:

Diverse Teaching Methods

Many times school ESL teachers around the US, including Chicago, provide instructions in the sky, leaving aside the fact that ESL children have significant difficulties processing the language.

Learning ESL becomes a tiring task for young kids and teens.

Thus, here the role of private ESL tutors gain prominence, mainly because the private tutor will not stick to one mode of teaching style.

Superprof ESL tutors use various teaching methods and techniques to ensure you understand and feel related. For instance, if you prefer learning through visuals, our private tutors will use videos, charts, flashcards, among other things.

Whereas, if you learn through practice, our ESL tutors may assign you specific projects or design custom games to keep you involved and committed.

Indeed, with Superprof private tutoring lessons, you’re bound to optimize your learning potential.           


The ‘silent period’ is where new language learners experience where they don’t speak much. It doesn’t mean that they don’t follow the lessons – but they are just taking their time to rewire their brains to speak a new language.

This phase is pretty natural for ESL or ELL students, but many school teachers across the US don’t understand what it's about. They force the students to speak even when they don’t want to.

As a result, this behavior further discourages ESL students from speaking.

However, Superprof private ESL tutors are fully aware of this phase and know how to tackle it. Our expert ESL tutors will talk you out by applying various techniques such as engaging through talking quietly and calmly, provide you extra time for response, promote to draw or act out to communicate until they’re ready, etc.  

We know it’s nothing more than a normal phase in ESL learning acquisition, so you won’t face any kind of pressure to talk and learn quickly.   

Quick Results

Imagine building a home with wood but no glue and screws. Do you think your house structure will hold? Yes, it wouldn’t. It’ll collapse.

That’s precisely what happens when you speak English without correct grammar.

Grammar is essential to English language learning. Without a proper understanding of English grammar rules, your English will not make sense.

Superprof ESL tutoring is the perfect solution to your English grammar mistakes. We help you improve your grammar skills by applying multiple approaches. Our tutors may take a more practical approach where they demonstrate, drill, or even explain.

Similarly, Superprof ESL tutors can take an informal method like designing creative games from grammar lessons. This way, you’ll find ESL learning more interested and engaging.

Also, your ESL tutors will help you learn the English language connotations and nuances, that’ll help you speak and communicate efficiently.            

Self-Paced ESL Learning 

Many kindergartens and Grade 12 ESL students across the US, including Chicago, teach at a pre-determined pace. But the problem is that the learning pace varies for students with different backgrounds, proficiencies and ages.

Unfortunately, school teachers neglect this critical factor and continue teaching without knowing whether their efforts bear any fruits. As a result, the learning outcome remains zero for most students who simply can't keep up.

That’s where Superprof ESL tutoring comes in handy.

We’ve highly skilled ESL tutors who’ll encourage you to work at your pace. For example, you struggle with reading but do well when speaking English, your Superprof ESL tutor will spend extra time enhancing your English reading skills.

Moreover, our tutors can skip the topic or subject they know you mastered so that this time can be spent on something else.
