Over the course of your half-day training you will have the opportunity to hear from our highly-qualified trainer specializing in ESL. You will learn in both large and small group settings.  At the end of the training, you will walk away with a Certificate of Completion as well as a binder of resources to refer to over and over as you embark on your goal to be a volunteer tutor. We look forward to meeting you in an upcoming training.
