ESL Literacy Tutor
CARECEN seeks Literacy Tutors to help change lives by assisting adult learners in our ESOL classes develop and improve their reading, writing, and verbal English skills.
By developing literacy and language skills, our students are better equipped to tackle everyday tasks at the grocery store or workplace while working towards achieving life goals such as:
Preparing for (and passing!) citizenship tests
Earning their high school diploma or GED
Advancing their work opportunities
Supporting their children’s education
And overall personal satisfaction
This is a great opportunity for college students, retirees, or anyone interested in dedicating their time and language skills to serve their community. Literacy Tutors receive a rewarding experience to interact with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and learn more about ESOL and literacy fields.
Work one-on-one or in small groups with adult learners in our Hempstead or Brentwood offices
Work on literacy activities provided by the Class Instructor
We ask for a commitment of at least 2-3 hours per week with availabilities in the morning, afternoon, or evenings.
English fluency required
Spanish fluency preferred
Experience in classroom settings is helpful, but not required
Patient, dependable, and friendly
Literacy Tutors should be eager to gain experience working with adult learners from diverse, low-income immigrant backgrounds working to improve their lives and the lives of their families. Contact us if you’re interested in this opportunity!
