The MPC Preschool and Outreach Ministries have united to offer English as a Second Language. The committment is simple: meeting with a pupil once a week for a few months to teach basic English communication skills. No experience required.
The ESL program is flexible, lessons are not restricted to a classroom setting. In fact, many tutors and their students take walks in the park, go shopping together, or share a meal at a local restaurant. Volunteers also impact the lives of their students by studying the Bible together and assisting with their travel plans. Many of these friendships have lasted for several years. Even when students move back to their homeland, many keep in touch through SKYPE and email. One particular tutor was 'adopted' by the entire family and was called 'grandma' by the student's children. The ESL program continues to grow and there are currently students in need of tutors. Please consider this rewarding way to serve God and the international community in our own backyard.
The next semester for ESL Tutoring begins February 12 and runs through April 27. Training for ESL tutors is scheduled for Sunday, February 11 at 12:00 noon in Westminster Hall. If you're interested in committing an hour a week for 10 weeks of our semester, please complete the online information form. No experience needed, just a desire to help ESL students learn conversational English skills. For more information, give us a call.
