ESOL tutors don’t need to speak another language. You do need to be able to read, write and speak clear and fluent English. Literacy Volunteers of the Montachusett Area recruits, screens, orients, trains, and supports its volunteer tutors. (Tutors must have a high school diploma or a GED.) Giving your time as a volunteer tutor is a great way to give something back and to make a difference. You will also make a friend with every student you tutor.
To be an effective ESOL tutor, you'll need to be able to explain concepts clearly with a passion to help others learn English and our culture. Tutor Training Workshops are held during each calendar year: Adult Basic Education (ABE) workshops and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) workshops.
