Help someone open a door to any number of new opportunities by volunteering as an English as a second language tutor.
These opportunities are as limitless as the variety of ways in which people read, write and speak every day. Common goals are learning English to help children in school or interact with school staff, get a better job, or to become a citizen.
Parker Williams Branch Library, located at 10851 Scarsdale Blvd., will host a training session for volunteer English as a second language tutors on Thursday, September 19, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. After this session, tutors assist a group of adults on a schedule convenient for the tutor and students.
Second language ability is not required for tutors, and materials including lesson activities are provided.
For more information or to register for this workshop, please call the library at 281-484-2036.
