ESL tutor

The Legacy Center for Community Success believes everyone deserves a chance to succeed. Our programs help learners develop specific skills and build individual confidence. We foster a love of learning and community relationships based on grit, enthusiasm, and perseverance.

The English as a Second Language program serves adults whose first language is not English. Learners are trying to build conversational skills, community relationships, or English proficiency for professional certification. We offer high-quality, one-on-one tutoring in one two-hour session per week, year-round. Any learner who qualifies for our program is accepted, regardless of their ability to pay for services. We gather baseline data both internally and externally to measure the impact of tutoring. When learners accomplish their goal, we celebrate, and the learner graduates from our program.

Volunteer tutors meet with one learner two hours a week. Twelve hours of training are provided as well as all tutoring materials. Volunteers must complete a background check. A one-year commitment is preferred.

New tutors are always needed.

Training can be completed in person or online. Tutoring takes place online or in person within the Midland, Michigan, area.

Mission Statement

We provide evidence-based learning and developmental strategies in collaboration with other organizations to help individuals reach their full potential.

Description

The Legacy Center for Community Success (TLC) was formed in 2004 by Dr. Richard Dolinski to identify outside-the-classroom barriers to education and collaborate with other organizations to provide interventions that allow all children, youth and families to flourish and thrive. TLC has four organizational units:

  • Literacy Services (formerly the Literacy Council of Midland County)
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Youth Development
  • Families

Additionally, one of TLC’s core competencies is the evaluation of program outcomes. Outcomes-based program evaluations provide multiple benefits, including a determination of whether and to what extent a program is effective in achieving its objectives.
