VELT (Vocational & English Language Trainings) Tutoring Program provides a comfortable place for adult refugees to learn and practice English language skills so they can gain confidence and participate more fully in their ESL classes and in their community. Tutees receive supplementary assistance in a one-on-one or small group setting for improving their basic reading, writing, and speaking skills.
VELT tutoring program takes place Monday - Thursday mornings at our 4419 Ravenswood site. Volunteer tutors work with their tutees twice a week. The length of each tutoring session can be 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on tutees’ comfort.
Tutors will receive the ESL tutoring training prior to the first tutoring session.
