Thanks to our ESOL volunteer tutor Anne!

ESOL volunteer tutor AnneThanks to our ESOL volunteer tutor Anne Dachowski for giving her testimonial to Mountain Xpress and helping us accomplish our mission to transform lives and communities through the power of literacy! Anne has been a tutor for 17 years. We appreciate you! Thanks, Mountain Xpress, for your continuous support!
“When my schedule opened up 17 years ago, calling up Literacy Together was one of the first things I did. My initial motivation was to give back. My grandfather and great-grandparents came to Philadelphia from Poland knowing no English, and people helped them. I wanted to return the favor.”

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 ESOL volunteer tutor, either individually or in a small group of 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.

The ESOL Program welcomes volunteers from all over the world! We now have tutors in Florida, New York, Massachusetts, New Mexico, Texas, the UK, and Germany. Sign up here to volunteer with us!
