YOU CAN BE A VOLUNTEER TUTOR AND
HELP A NEIGHBOR LEARN ENGLISH
Many new residents of our Villages are unable to speak English. Eager to learn, they come to the Library and ask for help from Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns. Our organization has helped many hundreds to speak, read and write English, but we need more tutors, because there are always more men and women -- our neighbors – waiting
for someone to teach them.
Will you help one of them? All you have to do is take our
English for Speakers of Other Languages Tutor Training Workshop. You do not need prior teaching experience and
you do not need to know a foreign language. If you are nineteen or older, with a good command of the English
language, and have a desire to help someone, you can become and ESOL tutor.
Upon Completion of the workshop, you will be able to tutor an adult on a one-to-one basis. A commitment of two hours a week for a year is all that we ask. It is a rewarding experience for the student and for the tutor.
Understanding the English language is imperative to these students for obtaining better jobs and continuing their education. Our students rely on these services to give
them an opportunity to succeed in this country. You will be providing a lifelong benefit to the adults you tutor.
