Partners in English language to host tutor training

Partners in English Language Learning will offer its next two-day Tutor Training Saturday and April 27. PiELL is also the featured nonprofit at Center for the Arts for the month of April. Volunteers will be present at several events to answer questions about the organization. There will be informational displays in the lobby throughout April, as well.

Since 1985, Piell has offered free, one-on-one tutoring for adult English learners, creating a path to new work opportunities, helping students study for the citizenship exam, and often resulting in long-term friendships between students and tutors.

March 27, Partners in English Language Learning hosted its annual meeting and elected a new executive board to further its mission – helping English language learners become thriving members of our community. PiELL does this by offering language tutoring and building bridges that foster cross-cultural respect, understanding, and friendship.

New executive board members are: President, Diane Miessler, and Treasurer, Julia Carroll-Shea. Continuing board members are Past President, Bev Stout, Secretary, Nancy Guenther, Louise Beesley, Judi Kreinick and Mary Tassone.
