The Fort Lee Public Library is looking for tutors to teach English to adults in our community. No teaching or foreign language experience is necessary.
This is a great opportunity for anyone with a desire to make a difference in someone’s life! If you’re a retiree, a parent who wants to do something meaningful during school hours, a young adult looking to give back, or just interested in a rewarding volunteer experience, please contact us! We offer free training and materials and the chance to collaborate with other tutors.
Tutors must be at least 18 years old and reside in or around Fort Lee. Our classes are in person during the day and on Zoom in the evenings.
Minimum of a one-year commitment.
