We offer continued training and professional development opportunities for our volunteer tutors long after completing the initial training. If there is a particular topic you'd like to see us offer a workshop on, please email Steven.
Workshops are on Zoom or in person; please see the description for specifics. Workshops are designed for current LVCA tutors.
A note for volunteers from other organizations/agencies:
Thank you for your interest. We know many organizations are struggling, so we have no set fee for participation. Instead, we invite you to donate whatever amount seems appropriate for you. We have invested staff time and resources in creating and conducting these training sessions, so whatever you can contribute will help cover our costs.

Description: Whether you're working with beginner or advanced-level students, tackling writing can be a fun but challenging endeavor. Many of our students are intimidated by the idea of writing, thinking creating something in their new language is too complex a task. In this workshop, we'll look at some ways to get English language learners to build their writing skills in ways that are fun without being scary. I'll share some ideas on how to get emergent writers started, and more seasoned writers challenged.
