English as a Second Language (ESL)

1-on-1 ESL Tutoring

English language learners interested in improving their English skills are matched one-on-one with trained volunteer tutors in our community. Instruction is goal-directed and learner-centered. Pairs typically meet in their local library once or twice a week for an hour to an hour and a half each meeting. For more information on how to get started with improving your English, or how to become a volunteer tutor, please give us a call 530-552-5650.
