Adult Literacy ESOL Tutor Training begins Monday, April 23rd
Literacy Volunteers of the Pollard Memorial Library have scheduled a training for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) Tutors. This 18 hour training is free for anyone who is interested in volunteering to work with non-native English speakers seeking to improve their English. Our program offers free, confidential, flexibly-scheduled tutoring on a one-to-one or small group basis to adults in the Greater Lowell area. You do not need any prior teaching experience or knowledge of another language to become a tutor. All you need is an open mind, the desire to help an adult who needs you, and the ability to meet with your student for eight hours each month. We provide an initial program orientation and tutor training in order to prepare you to work with your student. Please note: attendance at the orientation and ALL training sessions is mandatory if you wish to become a tutor.
Monday, April 23, 2012 from 7 PM to 9 PM
This orientation provides an overview of the Literacy Volunteers of the Pollard Memorial Library program and the expectations we have for our tutors and students. Please register by calling Julie Iatron, Program Director, at 978-674-1541.
