The Needham Community Council announces the fall English as a 2nd Language [ESL] tutor training is scheduled to begin on Thursday, September 24th. This free training session runs for 6 consecutive Thursday nights from 7-9 p.m. Participants are expected to attend all 6 sessions to complete the training.
No experience or foreign language skills are required; just a genuine interest in helping a Needham-based adult improve their English.
After completion of the training, tutors will be matched one-on-one with students from our wait list and asked for a commitment of one hour per week for at least 9 months. Support is available from experienced tutors throughout the process.
For more information contact our office at 781-444-2415 or visit the Council website at www.needhamcommunitycouncil.org to submit an application online.
