ELI Faculty & Staff

ELI is proud to have an experienced and highly creative faculty, dedicated to providing our students with quality instruction that is based on sound theory and methods in second language instruction. All of our instructors have Master's degrees in TESL or TESL-related fields.

All of our faculty members have learned other languages themselves and many have studied and worked overseas. They know firsthand the challenges involved in acquiring a new language and adjusting to life in a new country and culture.

We all look forward to meeting you here in Akron, OH and helping you reach your goal of learning English and making your career dreams come true.
