Virtual ESL Learning Lab Volunteer
Asian Pacific Development Center
Asian Pacific Development Center (APDC) currently offers online ESL, GED and job preparation classes. We would like to expand the opportunities our students have to practice the skills they are learning with a teacher one-on-one. We will be starting a Learning Lab to meet this need. For now, the Lab will be online in Zoom, but the plan is for the lab to eventually be in person in the computer lab at APDC.
Students can drop in to the Learning Lab to get one-on-one help with English or Adult Basic Education (ABE)/Adult Secondary Education (ASE) material. They will be put in breakout rooms, and volunteers will join these breakout rooms to communicate with students about what they are studying in class and any additional areas they want help with. Volunteers may assign tasks, and they follow up to assess learning. Volunteers will not be expected to plan lessons. The concept of the Lab is to personalize students’ tutoring sessions to help meet their individual needs with the overall goal of supporting students in becoming more independent and self-directed in their learning. During a training, the ESL/ABE/ASE Coordinator will go over the process for assisting learners in the Lab. Currently, we are seeking volunteers to assist online only on Tuesdays form 12-2pm and Wednesdays 6-8pm. Please contact Heather Hernandez if you are interested! email@example.com
