ESL tutors needed for Cape Fear Literacy Council

WILMINGTON — The Cape Fear Literacy Council (CFLC) is asking for volunteers to teach free literacy instruction to adults. Tutors are needed for the English as a Second Language (ESL) Program, which has 102 active students enrolled in small group classes and one-on-one pairs. CFLC’s ESL students represent over 35 countries and languages.

Tutors interested in signing up for the next training must be at least 18 years old with a high-school diploma; there is no teaching experience or second-language knowledge required to join. Interested parties will undergo six hours of instruction and three hours of independent homework, for a total of nine hours of instructions.

There will be four classes held at 6 p.m. via Zoom: Monday and Thursdays, Aug. 23, 26, and 30, and Sept. 2. There is a $30 registration fee, which covers all materials. Tutors are to commit to one-on-one tutoring three hours a week, plus six-month prep. Class instructors commit to one-and-a-half to three-hours a week for eight-week sessions.
