Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights is a service-based, human rights organization that provides housing, health care, human services, and human rights protections to the most poor and vulnerable people in our society, and uses its 118 years of experience to advocate for social justice.

Heartland Human Care Services' (HHCS) Adult Volunteer Literacy (AVL) Project provides English as a Second Language instruction, emphasizing language fluency and competencies that are relevant to the daily lives of the adult students served. The AVL project is an essential component of HHCS' Refugee and Immigrant Community Services (RICS) department. ESL classes are held at a RICS site in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood. Volunteers provide classroom, small group, and one-on-one instruction for adult learners.

RICS is currently seeking a volunteer ESL tutor for Slavic speakers.

This tutor will lead a tutoring session for a small group (approximately 2-5) Slavic-speaking students for 1-1.5 hours once a week. The group would meet on a weeknight between the hours of 5:30 and 6 pm.

The Tutor Coordinator will provide the volunteer tutor with material to begin the tutoring session. Because the tutor / tutee relationship requires flexibility, tutors are invited to bring outside material or explore RICS's ESL library for material. The tutor is expected to communicate with the Tutor Coordinator to convey his/her tutees' needs. The volunteer tutor provides individual assistance and instruction as needed. S/he also keeps accurate attendance and records the progress of the tutees at the close of each session. Tutors must be flexible, creative and dependable.Tutors and tutees are expected to inform the Tutor Coordinator if they will not be able to attend any individual session.
