Get a tutor

English At Large provides free English language tutoring to adult English language learners. Learners must live or work within our 21-town service area.

Our individualized tutoring program provides English language lessons that allow learners to progress according to their own goals and at their own rate. Learners and tutors meet for about two hours each week at a convenient time in a public place, such as a local library.

Learners in our tutoring program will be matched with an English At Large-trained volunteer for 100 hours or one year of tutoring, whichever comes first. Tutors and learners decide on meeting dates, times, and duration, usually meeting once or twice a week.

This program is free of cost to participants. To be eligible for our One-to-One Tutoring Program, the learner must:

  • Plan to live in the United States for more than five years
  • Be 18 years or older
  • Live or work in one of the 21 communities we serve
  • Not be currently enrolled in high school or college classes
  • Not have a degree from a US college or university
  • Agree to meet regularly with their tutor and agree to all program requirements
  • Meet English Language level requirements (based on test given by English At Large)
