Literacy Volunteers of the Atheneum (LVA)

Are you interested in helping an adult learn English?

The Literacy Volunteers of the Atheneum (LVA)  is a program that provides free instruction to students who want to improve their skill in speaking English. The LVA offers free, weekly English classes at the Atheneum and one-on-one tutoring sessions throughout the week. For the tutoring sessions, students are paired with a volunteer tutor. The LVA is currently seeking tutors.

Experience as a teacher or with ESL training is not required – just a desire to help someone learn a new language, beginning with conversation. LVA organizers provide training and support to assist all volunteer tutors, who are asked to commit one or two hours a week to the program.

To become a tutor please fill out the form below. If you have any questions please contact the LVA coordinator by emailing .
