Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore Seeks Volunteers

Submitted by Joanne Argersinger

(February 21, 2024) — Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore is accepting applications for our Spring 2024 ESL Tutor Training Workshop. No experience is needed for this enriching experience, only a desire to have fun, learn another culture and help someone in our community.

Through our fourteen-hour program, conducted over eight sessions, individuals learn how to teach English to adult residents from around the world who want to learn or improve their English language skills. Potential tutors choose either the morning sessions from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., or the evening sessions from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The morning sessions are held in person at our office in the Westbrook Library; the evening session are a hybrid of in- person and virtual via Zoom. The next training session begins April 18, 2024 and runs through May 23, 2024. We also have an online self-facilitated training option available for those unable to attend these workshops, but who would still like to be trained as LVVS tutors.

We ask for a $35 donation for the training materials provided. If you are interested in becoming a tutor, you can obtain an application on our website www.lvvs.org. If you would like more information please contact the Literacy Volunteers office at (860) 399-0280 or by e-mail at jargersinger@lvvs.org
