Using the ProLiteracy training model, our 6-hour tutor training program prepares new tutors to instruct adults in English as a Second Language (ESL). The training is spread over two days, and it covers all you need to know to get started with your learner. Discover how to create a lesson plan, select the best learning materials, help your student set goals, and much more. After attending both days of the training, you’ll receive a certificate of completion from the Ascension Parish Library Adult Literacy Program.
