Want to lend a hand where it really counts? Our Adult Education tutoring program needs volunteers!
Adult Education utilizes volunteer tutors to teach English as a Second Language to low-income, immigrant adults. Instruction takes place in small groups (2-4 people per group). Lessons are mainly competency-based, with a focus on life-skills rather than grammar rules.
The volunteer will be assigned a regular group, with whom s/he will meet one evening each week, from 7-9 PM. Students come to school two evenings per week, which means that each tutor has a counterpart, who meets with the group on the opposite night.
