About

The ESL Practice Program needs volunteers to assist our adult English language students with small group conversation practice or one-on-one writing tutoring.

Afternoon Conversation Groups, January 17th - March 15th:
  • When: Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Afternoon Writing Partners, January 18th - March 14th:
  • When: Mondays and Wednesdays
  • Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Evening Conversation Groups, January 31st - March 15th:
  • When: Wednesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 5:45pm to 6:45pm
Evening Writing Partners, February 7th - March 15th:
  • When: Wednesdays and Thursdays
  • Time: 5:45pm to 6:45pm
The aim of Conversation Groups is to further our students' speaking and listening skills. Many of our students live with family or friends and don't get to practice these skills outside of class. Writing Partners, on the other hand, help individual students with homework from their writing and grammar classes as well as help students improve their overall writing skills.

Volunteers are asked to commit only one hour per week, 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.

For more information, please email mculhane@lagcc.cuny.edu for afternoon session, and mpena@lagcc.cuny.edu for evening sessions. Sessions will resume in January for Winter 2018 semester.
