The ESL Project works with Lebanon School Districts to enhance their bilingual education program. The ESL program focuses on tutoring non-native English speakers, whose original languages include Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Khmer, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Farsi (among others). Students range from the elementary to the high school level.
You do not need to be fluent in a foreign language to volunteer to be an ESL tutor. However, language fluency can be helpful when working with some students. Tutors who do speak a second language may also be asked to serve as a translator during parent-teacher conferences.
