Volunteers Wanted at Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore

Submitted by Joanne Argersinger

(January 31, 2023) — Literacy Volunteers Valley Shore is accepting application for our Spring 2023 New 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 14-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 to 11:00 a.m. or the evening sessions from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. The morning sessions are held in person at our office in the Westbrook Library and the evening sessions are a hybrid of in person and virtual via Zoom.

The next training session begins April 13, 2023, and runs through May 16, 2023. 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 an LVVS tutor.  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 If you would like more information, please contact the Literacy Volunteers office at (860) 399-0280 or by e-mail at
