Registration is still open for our online Winter term which began on January 11, 2021 and will run for 11 weeks.

We offer 14 levels of English classes-- from Intro to Advanced-- for a total of 8 hours of instruction each week. We have daytime and evening options to meet the diverse needs of our students. We also continue to offer the popular individual tutoring sessions launched in April. In this model, one student and one teacher arrange to meet weekly for 11 weeks to focus specifically on conversation and/or writing skills. And Citizenship classes are returning this winter! The 10-week course is conveniently scheduled in the early evening so that students may attend in conjunction with evening English classes or as a stand-alone class.

Students can find more details about group classes (including Citizenship) and about individual tutoring, including links to the registration forms, here. Volunteers interested in teaching will find details about the various positions and a link to the interest form here.
