Help a neighbor learn to speak English.
Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns
Many new residents of our villages are unable to speak English. Eager to learn, they come to the library and ask for help from Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns. Our organization has helped many hundreds to speak, read, and write English, but we need more tutors, because there are always more men and women - our neighbors - waiting for someone to teach them.
Will you help one of them? All you have to do is take our English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Tutor Training Workshop. You do not need prior teaching experience, and you do not need to know a foreign language. If you are nineteen or older, with a good command of English, and a desire to help someone, you can become an ESOL tutor.
Upon completion of the workshop, you will be able to tutor an adult on a one-to-one basis. A commitment of two hours a week for a year is all that we ask. It is a rewarding experience for the student and for the tutor.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
