Tutor & Student Recognition Events
As we wrap up our year, we thought it might be a good time to recognize all the hard work and accomplishments of our tutors and students. Join us to hear others' stories and trade stories of your learning with your fellow tutors and with students. The in-person event will be a casual potluck. We hope you can join us!

New Student Registration Week
7/28/2022 UPDATE: Student registration is closed. Thank you to all those who signed up in-person or online!
The weekly colloquy on Friday afternoon is informal discussions between tutors and students about anything to do with the American English language and American culture. Previous discussions that were the basis for the formation of this workshop were informative, fun, interesting, and included practical applications for both tutors and students.
The colloquy will meet every Fridays from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm in the Literacy ESL Classroom. It will also meet once a month on the first Saturday of the month from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm in the Literacy ESL Room.
