Upcoming Tutor Orientation: Thursday, September 19

Training of volunteers to tutor English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) begins soon. You don’t need to speak a foreign language to help someone learn English. The training provides information on issues common in working with adult speakers of other languages and techniques for teaching communication skills and overcoming language barriers. Six sessions are required.

Orientation: Thursday, September 19, 7:00 – 8:00 PM
Training: starts in October

Training will be held at the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s public library, located at 1 Wendell Ave. in Pittsfield.
