Volunteer Tutor Training--English as a Second Language (ESL)

Barbara Bush Library is seeking volunteer tutors to help non-English speaking adults learn to read, write and speak English.  A free training workshop will take place at the library on Saturday, January 12, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

You need not speak another language nor have teaching experience.  At the workshop we will introduce you to teaching techniques and materials which will allow you to communicate with non-English speaking  students.

After training you will be matched with a student or small group of students meeting at the library at a mutually convenient time.

For more information go to www.hcpl.net/literacy/new-tutors or call Nancy Pearsall at 281-376-4610.
