Remote ESOL tutoring at its best

Remote ESOL tutoring

Please read the remote ESOL tutoring success story of Barbara and Maryna! One advantage of our tutors and students having had to learn how to meet remotely is that they’re often more creative about keeping the learning going when travel plans interrupt their regular classes. Take Barbara and Maryna, for example: they’ve been meeting on Zoom since November 2020. Barbara lives in Florida for part of the year and Asheville for the other, but that hasn’t affected their lessons at all. And when Maryna went to Ukraine for an extended visit this summer, she kept in touch with Barbara and practiced her English by taking videos of what she was doing, narrating them in English, and emailing them to Barbara. 

“I am very happy to have such a wonderful teacher in my life! I thank Barbara for our informative and fun lessons.” ~ Maryna

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.
