NEW START Adult Learning Program

  • 6 people are interested

NEW START Adult Learning Program is looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and organized female to teach a female ESL student, Beginners English as a Second Language (ESL), who is requesting a female tutor. Books will be provided and use of a laptop would be helpful. Teaching experience is preferred, but not necessary. Online tutor training sessions are available.

Knowing a second language yourself is not necessary!

Meeting Time:
Newark Library; Tuesday afternoons, Wednesday mornings, or Friday mornings.

Time Commitment: At least 60 hours in total.

Job Duties:

  • Meet once a week for 2 hours. To meet the terms of our grant, tutors need to commit to and students need to attend tutoring sessions for a total of 60 hours. Students are given two tests. First, a placement test will be given to measure their skills when they first enter the program. When they have obtained 60 hours of instructional time they will be tested again to measure the growth of their knowledge. Testing our students is a way to measure quantifiable growth and advancement of their skills. It is also a way for us as teachers and tutors to see what our students know and where they need help.
  • Keep track of student attendance hours through Google Sheets or an alternate designated form and make sure they are submitted to the NEW START Main Office at least every two weeks. These hours go into a student database. Based on your student's post-test score after 60 hours of instruction, your student will receive a certificate if they have gained a skill level.
  • Help student meet goals put in place by program.
