The English Tutoring Project

The English Tutoring Project is a nonprofit group, begun to help children from immigrant and refugee families to learn English.

Grounded in Catholic tradition and social teachings, the English Tutoring Project (ETP) provides on-site assistance to children from refugee and immigrant families to acquire English language skills in an environment where all children experience respect for themselves and their culture.


ETP is an initiative of the St. Louis Area Women Religious Collaborative Ministries and began with startup support from the Adorers and other Missouri members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).

“I love my ministry of teaching and service to these immigrant children and their families. It is my small way of helping to bring about “that beautiful order of things” which was the mission of St. Maria DeMattias and which I/we Adorers continue to strive to make real in our world today.”
– Sr. Jane Gegg, ASC
