Tutor Training Workshops

Tutor Training Workshops are held regularly at the English-Speaking Union for the benefit of tutors in our English in Action program. During the workshops, experienced educators offer advice on how to work with your students on such topics as: pronunciation, American culture, current events, and many more. Suggestions are most welcome!

Details about upcoming workshops are emailed to all tutors and are all posted on this page.

Past workshops topics have included:

  • Music in English and English in Music 
  • Teaching Pronunciation
  • The Compelling Nature of the Everyday: Journaling as a Springboard for Conversation
  • Using the News to Teach English
  • Cross Cultural Communication: From Awareness to Competence
  • Using the Tutor Toolkit
