2. Learning Labs
Learn English in a small group focused on a specific topic. Attendance is required, space is limited, and learners must register in advance. Registration opens in December for winter learning labs, April for spring/summer learning labs, and August for fall learning labs. Check back for new learning labs!
3. ESL Personal Tutoring
ESL Personal Tutoring is for those who want more intensive study. Most ESL Personal Tutoring is in clusters of 3-4 learners with one tutor. We have very few one-on-one placements, and they are for learners who can not read or write in any language. If qualified, Washtenaw Literacy assigns learners with a tutor for 6 months to work on specific goals and skills. Learners meet with the tutor for two hours a week in public places. An orientation is required to see if a learner is qualified for a personal tutor.
