Westside ESL

A free English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Trinity Reformed Church for adults in the Grand Rapids community, particularly on the northwest side, who do not speak English as a first language and who have limited access to English language training.

Volunteer to teach, tutor, assist, provide childcare, or provide snacks.

Classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30-8:00 PM

Westside ESL

No previous experience with ESL tutoring, or tutoring in general, is needed to volunteer. Volunteer tutors receive a brief training on working with English language learners and are supported by the program coordinator. We ask tutors to commit to one evening per week, so that there is consistency from week to week in the class, but tutors can request a night off, as needed.
