Become a Volunteer Tutor for Literacy Volunteers of the Pollard Memorial Library - Training Starts in January
Literacy Volunteers of the Pollard Memorial Library has 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.
Attendance at the orientation and ALL training sessions is mandatory if you wish to become a tutor.
