The Language Clinic needs volunteers to assist our adult English language students with small group conversation practice or one-on-one writing tutoring. The Language Clinic will begin Winter 2017 semester on Tuesday, January 24th and close on Thursday, March 16th. The Clinic operates Monday-Thursday from 1:00-2:15 during Fall, Winter, and Spring semesters. It is part of The English Language Center, an adult pre-academic intensive English program at LaGuardia Community College. We are one of the largest and most diverse ESL programs in the United States. Please visit our website at

Many of our students live with family or friends and don't get to practice their English skills outside of class. Tutors on conversation days chat casually in small groups of six. Writing tutors help individual students with homework from their writing and grammar classes. The social and cultural support we also provide is an important factor in helping them succeed. We provide orientation and helpful materials at the beginning of each semester. Volunteers are asked to commit only one hour per week for eight weeks, though we are happy to have you more often if you like. Our students are very motivated and fun to work with, and they are very appreciative of any help you can give. It is satisfying to see how with one simple conversation you can create immediate and meaningful change.
