About

We are looking for dedicated and patient individuals to server as an ESL Instructor to our seniors here at Lakeview Place. Lakeview Place is an affordable housing program for seniors. The Lakeview Place ESL Instructor will be responsible for tutoring and helping senior residents who are native speakers of other languages to learn English and help immigrants adapt to their new language. They will teach English to a class or individual resident of Lakeview Place. This is an opportunity to interact with senior residents in a relaxed environment. Volunteering in this capacity will help our senior adults adapt into their new environment.
