Become a Volunteer Tutor

How do I become a tutor?

To become a volunteer tutor, you must attend an orientation session.

To sign up for a free orientation session, please email Karen Ruelle (kruelle@esuus.org).



As an EiA Tutor, you will:

  • Make a difference in your community
  • Meet new people
  • Share your culture and experiences
  • Learn about other cultures

Time commitment

2 hours per week.  Volunteer leadership positions available.

English in Action Conversations may be the beginning to a lifelong interest in a particular area of the world, or even a deeper understanding of your own culture.


When and where do English in Action Conversations meet?

English in Action Conversations are offered Monday through Saturday. Evening sessions are held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Conversation sessions meet at locations throughout Manhattan. Read the full schedule here.
