Cecelia’s success story as an ESOL tutor of six students

Without a doubt, there have been pros and cons in our move to mostly online ESOL instruction over the last two years, but one undeniable advantage has been an increase in the pool of available volunteers. With online instruction, it’s not necessary for the tutor to live in the area, and our name has spread far and wide: we now have ESOL volunteers in Florida, New York, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Texas, the UK, and Germany! See the interview below with Cecelia, an American living in Germany, who individually tutors six different ESOL students from Asheville!
Cecelia’s success story as an ESOL tutor of six students

The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program teaches oral English, reading, and writing to adults who have immigrated to the U.S. from around the world. ESOL is the largest program at Literacy Together, serving approximately 250 students annually. Our students’ most common goals in learning English are to improve their employment prospects, help their children in school, and pass the U.S. Naturalization exam.

Each student works with a trained volunteer tutor, either individually or in a small group of up to ten people. Tutoring takes place for two hours each week at times and locations that are mutually convenient for students and tutors. Tutors may choose to teach one (1) two-hour session or two (2) one-hour sessions each week and may do so online or in-person (read Barbara’s experience tutoring Maryna remotely).
