English at Large seeking volunteers to aid ESL immigrants

 

From English At Large Flyer:

 

English at Large is a nonprofit that provides individual and small group instruction through a volunteer network to adult immigrants and other newcomers who want to acquire English language skills as they adapt to life in the United States. Our vision is that newcomers to the United States will develop the English language skills and acquire the cultural knowledge needed to fully engage in their communities and fulfill their life goals.

 

English At Large is currently looking for individuals that are interested in becoming an English tutor, or an intake assessor.


We are looking for volunteers that are able to access Littleton, Boxborough, Acton, Carlisle, Concord, Lincoln, Bedford, Billerica, Wilmington, Burlington, Lexington, Waltham, North Reading,Reading, Wakefield, Woburn, Stoneham, Winchester, Medford, Arlington, Belmont.


To be an English tutor, you don't need previous teaching experience. You don't even need to know another language. You only need desire, commitment, and training.


As a volunteer one-to-one tutor with English At Large, you will be:


• Trained in a 15-hour workshop series to learn the essentials of a successful tutoring

relationship

• Matched with an adult learner in your area

• Encouraged to work with your learner for 2-3 hours per week, always in a public place— usually a library. (You and your learner will agree on time and place.)

• Expected to make a minimum commitment of 100 contact hours with your learner

• Certified as a tutor by English At Large and ProLiteracy America


Being an Intake Assessor takes requires less of a time commitment and still allows you to work with local Adult English Language Learners.


As an Intake Assessor with English At Large, you will be:

• Trained on how to administer a short reading/writing and listening/speaking test.

• Connected with an adult learner in your area

• Asked to complete 2 (approximately hour-long) intakes a month
