Our program offers tutors a chance to speak with and teach English to a small group of students.

About

Adult Education utilizes volunteer tutors to teach English as a Second Language to low-income, immigrant adults. Instruction takes place in small groups (2-4 people per group). Lessons are mainly competency-based, with a focus on life-skills rather than grammar rules.

The volunteer will be assigned a regular group, with whom s/he will meet one evening each week, from 7-9 PM. Students come to school two evenings per week, which means that each tutor has a counterpart, who meets with the group on the opposite night.

Upon arriving at the school, the tutor finds a lesson plan and all necessary materials prepared. The volunteer and his/her students work through the lesson plan; the professional staff is present to assist in any way needed.

To volunteer, come to the school any Tuesday or Thursday at 6:00 p.m. for a 2-hour orientation and observation, spending time observing other tutors working one-on-one with small groups of students.
