Group Tutoring session

Community Literacy is a very popular group ESL Tutoring program for adult immigrants and refugees. All tutoring is done in English and tutors work in weekly 2-hour classes with their assigned student for one semester. No experience needed: training and lesson plans are provided, and an ESL instructor is available every class to offer you and your student support as needed. You can apply for any semester listed on the application; if it ends up that all tutor spots are full for the session/semester you're applying, you can be added to the Wait List, to replace an active tutor if s/he needs to withdraw from the program. (Our application is the best place to find the most up-to-date info about current openings.)

We typically need 4-6 tutors for each session below (you'd be assigned only one):

  • Mon nights, 6-8pm at Literacy Network (701 Dane St) (Focus on basic computer literacy)
  • Tue mornings 10am-12noon at Literacy Network
