One-on-one tutoring is at the heart of the English Skills Learning Center and exemplifies our mission to individualize instruction for every student. Matching the availability of our volunteers with the needs of the student, we arrange lessons that fit their schedules and adjust to their educational background. Many of our students are able to access our small group classes even if they are working more than one job or have childcare and/or transportation concerns. The One-on-One Program at the ESLC is unique because it provides English instruction to adults who don’t have access to our small group classes due largely to special circumstances not already mentioned.
Every student is assessed when they come to our office to register for our services by an ESLC staff member. A student will be placed in the One-on-One program upon qualification and determination by the ESLC staff. At any given time, the one-on-one program has 30-40 student/volunteer matches meeting throughout Salt Lake County. One-on-one matches are held in homes, libraries, community centers, and other locations convenient for both the volunteer and student to meet. Please come to our office Monday through Thursday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. to register for classes.
