OUR PROGRAMS

DePorres Place provides one-to-one tutoring and small group classes for adults who are learning to read, write, and/or speak English. Adults progress in our programs!

VOLUNTEER

How exciting it is to meet new people and form new relationships. Volunteering reduces stress, boosts our self-esteem and makes us feel good about making a difference!

Learning to read, write and speak English can be a daunting experience for many adults.  However, at DePorres Place, classes are small and learning is fun. Volunteer tutors teach classes either in small groups or one-to-one.  Classes are held in a relaxed atmosphere, with staff and volunteers.

  • Classes are held twice a week for 1 1/2 hours each, or once a week for 2 hours.
  • Tutoring is continuous and lasts as long as the student wants to continue.
  • There is no cost for the classes. Students pay for their own books, but those who cannot pay are provided with books at no charge.
  • New students must register and take a placement test.
