Tutor Now, English as a Second Language offers theory and techniques specific to tutoring learners for whom English is not the first language, and whose level of literacy in their native language ranges from pre-literate to highly advanced.  

Participants will learn:

  • Second language acquisition theory
  • Goals setting and lesson planning
  • Strategies for teaching speaking, listening, reading and writing

The blended training mixes traditional face-to-face classroom facilitated workshops with self-paced online modules. The class meets face-to-face twice. In addition, volunteers are required to read material and complete assignments online by the end of the class.
