Help fill a need in our community. Douglas County residents are needed to help solve the language barrier. The ESL in-home program of Northern Nevada has a waiting list of adults wanting to learn English but who are unable to attend school classes. Tutors are needed to help on a one-to-one basis. One hour of your time once a week could make a difference in someone’s life. No teaching experience or knowledge or ability to speak another language is required (although some Spanish is helpful). Training and teaching materials are provided. Call 267-9642 or 888-021 for ESL In-Home Program information.
