PiELL has new location, upcoming tutor training


Partners in English Language Learning has moved to a new location! We are now located in the Sierra Nevada Children’s Services building at 256 Buena Vista St., Suite 110, in Grass Valley. For more than 25 years, PiELL has trained volunteers to tutor English, one on one, to adult students in Nevada County.

Their tutors and students frequently form long-lasting friendships during their tutoring sessions.

In fact, the current board president, Myra Arstein, has been meeting with her student, Margarita, for nearly 10 years. They’ve become great friends and have lunch together before each tutoring session.

Margarita has come so far in her studies that she volunteers her services to help our student base, as our student liaison for Spanish-speaking students.

The program offers its two-day new tutor training sessions twice a year. After the training, the new tutors are matched with adult students.

Most tutors spend one to two hours per week teaching their learners, meeting wherever is convenient for both of them. If you are interested in volunteering for PiELL, please call us at 530-274-8428 or email us at admin@piell.org.

Our next new tutor training session is April 20 and 27. They welcome anyone interested in the program to drop by during office hours.
