This spring semester 826 Valencia is offering a range of trainings for volunteer tutors who are eager to learn the ropes of mentoring students with diverse learning styles and skill sets. Join us on Friday, March 20th from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for a very special training, English Language Learners Support. This workshop will help you grasp a better understanding of how to work with students with a primary language other than English. You will gain an array of tutor strategies which you will be able to implement during your next tutoring session when working with English Language Learners.
