On Wednesdays from 7:30-9:00 pm, our volunteers offer to teach English to Hispanics in both group and individual sessions, in our Bilingual Exchange program — and we learn some Spanish in the process. We are also looking for volunteer tutors who are willing to teach once a month on Wednesdays.
The format is very informal. Most of the students work as cooks, maids, laborers, gardeners, etc. Folks bring their children, since we provide free child care. The focus is on learning to speak English and the teachers certainly have opportunity to practice and improve their Spanish. We provide the materials you need and materials for the students.
Bilingual Exchange urgently needs more tutors! Recently we have had up to 15 students who are on different levels of proficiency in speaking English, and if you know someone who can help, please contact Mary Anna Hovey.
