Park City School District is looking for volunteers from the community to be English tutors for adults wanting to improve their language. Volunteers will assist adults with conversational English, English literacy, English grammar, pronunciation, and civics.
Known as the “Good Neighbors Program,” adults who want to improve their English work with their volunteer tutor to create a schedule to meet one to two hours a week. Volunteers are asked to make a three-month commitment.
“Our goal is to help English language learners from all over the world develop their English communication skills,” said Lauren Beheshti, lead program coordinator for PCSD Community Education. “This allows our students to feel more a part of the community.”
Beheshti said a large classroom setting can sometimes be intimidating for English language learners so this individualized program was created to help them feel more comfortable with a tutor.
