About

Be a volunteer English Coach for a refugee, asylee or new immigrant. Some of our volunteer coaches speak Arabic and other languages, many do not. Some volunteer coaches are teachers, many are not. Most of our learners are Beginners or Beginner/Intermediate learners with about 1-2 years in the US. A few of our learners are professionals with prior education in their home country.

We supply our volunteer Coaches with flash cards, visuals, and other learning materials. Our adult learning instructor can help you locate lesson plans that are a good fit for your learner. You and your learner set a schedule of approximately 4 hours of study together each week. Some training and orientation is available to you. Our goal is to provide one-on-one support to help learners get their spoken English to a level that helps them find work, or talk with their child's teacher, or understand their family doctor.
