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.
The ESL Tutor Training day will happen on Saturday, September 22nd, from 9 am to 3 pm at the Barbara Bush at Cypress Creek library branch on Cypresswood Drive east of Stuebner Airline. To make further inquiries or sign up, please call Charity Martin at our branch at 832-559-4220.
