About

Help adults better their lives by improving their English language skills!

Subject/Skills: English as a Second Language (ESL) - speaking, listening, reading, writing, grammar; American culture

Target Levels: Beginning Low - Intermediate High

Note: You do NOT need to speak a language other than English

Setting: One-on-one ongoing tutoring (not drop-in), occasionally small group (3-6) tutoring

Consider being a tutor if you are 18 or older, able to read, write, and speak English clearly; have basic computer skills; are patient and culturally sensitive; and are willing to do the following:

  • Tutor at least once a week for 1-2 hours each session;

  • Commit to a minimum of 6 months or longer;

  • Complete a tutor training workshop before beginning tutoring;

  • Participate in tutor in-service meetings throughout the year to reinforce your tutoring skills.

After completing training, tutors are matched with a learner based on preferred locations and day/time availability of both involved. Basic materials for tutor and learner are provided at no charge. Tutoring takes place at any of the 28 library branches,* or may occur at some other public location. Literacy staff provides assistance and support as learners progress through the program.

*We currently have a particular need for tutors in the Natomas and Arden-Arcade areas.
