Upcoming Tutor Training and Orientation

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.

If you’re interested in learning more about being a tutor, and want more details about the upcoming tutor training sessions, please come to the next orientation on Wednesday, October 5 at 7:00 PM at the Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield’s public library, located at 1 Wendell Ave. in Pittsfield.

Training sessions will be October 24, 27, 31, November 3, 7 and 10 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM, with all sessions required. The training will be held at the Berkshire Athenaeum. For information call 413-499-9487 or email us at LVBC@bcn.net.
