We Need Even More ESL Tutors

Ten weeks ago we wrote that our English as a Second Language programs were burgeoning and that we needed tutors. A number of people signed up and we’re so grateful. And now we need even more tutors because even more people are asking to learn English.

We need Tutors

Our English as a Second Language programs are burgeoning. Every week at the library we hold discussion groups that provide forums for practicing speaking English, and we also offer individual tutoring sessions--also at the library--at times convenient to the tutor and the student.

We're looking for more volunteers to tutor people who want to learn to speak, read, and write English. Are you interested? If you'd like to volunteer, please give Charity Martin a call at 832-559-4200. 

Many Adult Activities at the Library

Wow!  I was just looking at the calendar and we sure have a lot going on at Maud Marks over the next week!

Do you want to help out in the community?  On Saturday we have an English as a Second Language tutor training session starting at 9 AM.  In just 4 hours, we'll prepare you to teach adults from various countries English.  You don't even have to speak another language to help out; in fact, we prefer that you don't!  All we ask of you is a commitment of 1 1/2 hours per week through May.  Just think how rewarding it will be to help someone acclimate to life here in the Katy area!

Be a Volunteer ESL Tutor

TutorThere are a lot of people in the Fairbanks area who want to learn to read, write, and speak the English language.  If you have a little spare time, you can help them.  You don’t have to be able to speak a foreign language, and we will provide teaching materials for you.  If you are interested, please come to a training session for volunteer ESL tutors here at the Fairbanks Library on Friday, September 7, from 1:00-4:00 pm.  After the training session, we will try to match tutors with students who can meet on the same schedule.  To register, please call the library at (713) 466-4438.
