I used this website to contact Erie House about the volunteer ESL tutor position. Their coordinator contacted me via email just two hours later. I had a bunch of follow-up questions and always received a response within a day. They connected me with a student right after I finished my tutor training. I've been tutoring via Skype for about five weeks now. My student is a native speaker of Spanish who is very motivated to improve her English. The Erie House employees are organized and helpful and I feel they appreciate me as a tutor, which is nice. I've done a bunch of volunteering over the years and this is one of the best orgs I've volunteered with.
