English as a Second Langage (ESL) at the Dominican Learning Center

ESL - English as a Second Language

For those whose native language is not English and who want to learn to read, write, understand, and speak English.
  • We offer one-to-one tutoring with a trained volunteer.
  • One tutoring session per week – 1.5 to 2 hours.
  • One hour per week of homework
  • Meet with your tutor in person at a convenient library location or at our office, or meet with your tutor online through Zoom. We will try to match you with a tutor that is available at a time convenient for you.
  • $45 per year.
  • Books are provided at no charge.
  • To register for one-to-one ESL tutoring call 614-444-7330 x2 or email rrichardop@yahoo.com.
  • Testing and registration appointments are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the school year. Please note we will begin taking registration appointments in late August each year and begin registration/testing in September.
  • After testing and registration, learners’ names go to a waitlist to be matched with a tutor.  We currently do not have enough tutors to match the demand, so some learners are waiting longer than we like.  Wait time could be one to three months.
