Opportunity Details

ESL Adult Literacy Tutors

Many new residents of the Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow community are unable to speak English. Eager to learn, they come to the Warner Library and ask for help from Literacy Volunteers of the Tarrytowns. This organization has helped hundreds to speak, read, and write English, but it can't do it all without the help of its volunteer tutors!

All Literacy Volunteer Tutors must:

  • Complete an online training
  • Be at least 19 years old
  • Commit to tutoring for two hours per week for a full year
  • Have a good command of the English language
  • Have the desire to help their neighbors learn English—no prior teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language required!

Upon completion of the training workshop, volunteers will be able to tutor an adult on a one-to-one basis. This is a rewarding experience for both the learner and the tutor. Understanding the English language is imperative to these learners for obtaining better jobs and continuing their education, and they rely on these services to give them an opportunity to succeed in this country. Volunteers will be providing a lifelong benefit to the adults they tutor—express interest below to get started!
