English as a Second Language (ESL) Tutoring
English as a Second Language Tutoring
Learning English is one of the most challenging and essential tasks for newly-arrived refugees. It is the first step to becoming self-sufficient, and the best way to become integrated in one’s community. Getting a job, communicating with neighbors, or accessing important services such as the police or fire department is difficult without English language skills.
We offer English as a Second Language (ESL) tutoring services to meet the needs of refugees who are unable to attend ESL classes. A tutor works one-on-one with a student, providing an individualized curriculum that suits the specific needs. Many students with ESL tutors are stay-at-home parents or working adults and would not otherwise have access to learning English.
All tutors are volunteers who meet at the student’s home for 3 hours per week. Volunteers commit to tutoring their student for a minimum of 6 months, or ideally a year. Previous training or experience in teaching or ESL is required for this role.
