At Central Synagogue

English in Action

Date: Thursdays, 10:30am-12:30pm
Location: Community House

Volunteer tutors meet one-on-one each week with their assigned student for two hours of self-directed conversation. Those who are tutored may be students here for graduate studies, or spouses of UN or corporate employees, as well as immigrants hoping to obtain American citizenship. The tutors learn as much about their students’ countries and cultures as the students learn about the US. Lasting bonds are often formed between tutors and students. This program is put on in coordination with the English-Speaking Union, which helps foreigners in New York City feel at home with our language and culture. If you are interested in learning more, please email Hallie Isquith at isquithh@censyn.org and she’ll put you in touch with the program’s lay leaders. English in Action is not currently accepting new volunteers, but they are always happy to talk to people about the program and add to their list of prospective volunteers.
