Volunteer ESL Tutors Needed

TUTORS SOUGHT FOR THE 'INDIVIDUAL ENGLISH CONVERSATION PROGRAM' OF THE FRIENDS OF DAVIS INTERNATIONAL CENTER AT PRINCETON UNIVERSITY

The Individual English Conversation Program is one of several programs run by the Friends of Davis International Center. This program matches graduate students and visiting scholars at the University with a volunteer tutor to practice conversational English. This is a one-on-one program. The pair is expected to meet for an hour or so once a week for up to an academic year. The main purpose is to give the student the opportunity to improve his or her English skills with the guidance of a native speaker, in an informal atmosphere. Tutors often find themselves assisting in a variety of other ways to help the student adjust to life in Princeton, and new friendships develop. This is a highly rewarding activity for both the volunteer and the student.

At least 50 students are enrolled at any given time, so new tutors are always in demand. The most important qualification is that the tutor be a native English speaker. No teaching or ESL experience is required.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, or have any questions, please contact Program coordinator Carl Clough at cgclough16@embarqmail.com (908.359.8801) or Hanna Hand at 609.258.1170 (Davis International Center). Thank you!
