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.

Calling for English as a Second Language Tutors

Have you ever thought of helping someone learn to speak English?
Among the various English as a Second Language (ESL) programs here at the library is a tutoring program that partners language learners with volunteer tutors. At the end of September we’ll be training a new group of volunteers in the basics of being a tutor so we’re putting out an appeal for interested people.
To be a tutor here you do not have to have language skills in another language. All the tutoring happens at the library; the sessions are scheduled at the convenience of the tutor and the student; and tutors are given a variety of tools and supports to help with the process.  If that awakens your curiosity, then please consider taking the training day and see if this is for you.

Teach Someone to Speak English or to Read

Harris County Public Library is always looking for good volunteer literacy and ESL tutors.  Literacy tutors teach adults to read in a one-on-one arrangement.  ESL tutors teach English to adults, one-on-one, in small groups, or in a small class.  Tutors go through a brief training program.  The Literacy Coordinator or the branch library staff then matches them with students.  There is a free literacy tutor training program coming up at the Aldine Branch Library, 11331 Airline Drive, on Saturday, October 31, from 9:00-3:30.  If this is a way you would like to serve your community, please contact the Harris County Public Library administrative offices at (713) 749-9000 or your library branch.
