Just the Two of Us: One on One Tutoring with Adult ESL Learners

Date: Wednesday, October 16, 2019

Time: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon

Location: Minnesota Literacy Council main office, 700 Raymond Avenue, Suite 180, Saint Paul, MN 55114

Cost: There is no fee for this training, but your tax-deductible donation will support our tutor training program and literacy learners across Minnesota!

Description: One on one tutoring is fun and rewarding, but volunteer tutors can also face a lot of challenging questions, such as “Where do I begin?” “How do I incorporate speaking and listening?” “What errors should I correct?” and most importantly, “How do I keep both of us engaged?” During this workshop, you’ll learn best practices for one on one tutoring, guidelines for lesson planning, and suggestions for interactive activities and games. You’ll leave feeling better prepared to help ESL learners at any level improve their English skills through effective planning and preparation. Be prepared to engage in hands-on learning! Participants who complete this workshop will receive a 3-hour certificate of completion from the Minnesota Literacy Council.
