Our Response to COVID-19

The world has changed as a result of the current Coronavirus pandemic

In accordance with the Social Distancing public health guidelines, as well as on pace with the technological times of the 21st Century, the English Language In-Home Program has moved from being physically in a student’s home to being a part of their home via the Internet.

At this time, all ESL tutoring for beginners, conversational English groups, and GED preparation is being conducted via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, and Phone until further notice.

For more information, please contact Florence G. Phillips at 775-888-2021 or englishinhomeprogram@gmail.com.

Since February 2004, our community volunteer tutors have assisted over 6,000 adult learners to become more informed and self-reliant by learning to speak, read, write, and understand English.

We offer adults an opportunity to learn or improve their English language skills. The training sessions and basic materials are provided AT NO COST to the tutor and student. To learn more about our program, click on an icon below.
