ESL & Literacy is a free award-winning ESL/Literacy program brought to you by the Newton Free Library. Our volunteer tutors provide one-to-one tutoring or small group instruction (2-3 students) in English as a Second Language (ESL). We also help adult learners whose first language is English to improve their reading skills. Our learners are at all levels of English proficiency and have diverse needs, interests and goals. At present 375 volunteer tutors are helping 500 learners from many different countries. Our wonderful volunteer tutors are caring members of the community who help integrate our learners into an English-speaking world.
