Description

TEACH - Tutoring English to Advance Change - works toward systemic change in society by empowering adults with limited English proficiency to make their voices heard through a unique integration of practical one-on-one English literacy education, and individualized cultural mentoring and community inclusion support.

As cultural mentors and coaches, TEACH tutors are responsive to each student's language and cultural challenges and circumstances as they transition to becoming active members of their communities:

* For the English language learner anxious about being unable to communicate at her child's first parent-teacher conference, the tutor explains the purpose of the conference and what to expect.

* For the English Language learner obtaining a driver’s license, the tutor explains the process, the documents needed, and what to expect at the DMV.

* For the English language learner who needs a job, the tutor helps him navigate through the job search process unique to U.S. culture, prepare resumes and applications, and practice interviewing.

* For the English language learner renting an apartment, the tutor explains conventions of renting, and reviews the lease with the student to explain any unclear language.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, 335 TEACH tutors provided 9,000 one-to-one tutoring to 635 students at 18 tutoring sites. Tutors also assisted 30 students in becoming U.S. citizens.

TEACH reaches communities in Western Cook, DuPage, and Will counties.
