Whether you’re currently helping the members of our families learn English or are hoping to lend a hand in the future, we invite you to participate in a two-part tutor training program!
It’s free to you, though space is limited — learn more below and register today!
The Hyde Park Refugee Project is partnering with Literacy Works to provide a 12-hour ESL Tutor Essentials training, which prepares new tutors to instruct adults in English as a Second Language (ESL). The training covers all you need to know to get started with your learner. Discover how to create a lesson plan, select the best learning materials, help your student set goals, and much more. Each day will include hands-on, interactive activities, opportunities for questions, and multiple resources you can take home to use with your learner. All participants will also receive a resource packet with valuable supplemental information. This is a 2-day training. We highly recommend you attend both days of the training to get the most benefit. After attending both days, you’ll receive a certificate of completion.
Day One: Saturday, August 12, 9:30am-3:30pm
Day Two: Saturday, August 26, 9:30am-3:30pm
Location for both sessions: Augustana Lutheran Church, 5500 S. Woodlawn, Chicago, IL 60637 (parking available)
This ESL training is free for all participants, but space is limited. Register early to make sure you get a spot!
