Ouachita Calhoun Counties Literacy Council
May 28, 2010
I am just getting started as a tutor for the OCCLC. I have worked with a student whose first language is Spanish. At first, the main goal for tutoring was to enhance his basic writing skills. Eventually, we bagan working on conversational skills. It was important to him to not only communicate through writing but to also learn the most basic topics to use in casual conversation. I enjoyed working with this student and helping him accomplish his goals. OCCLC has a lot to offer ESL students who just want to make a valuable contribution to the community that they have chosen to call home.
