Citizenship Education and Customized English Tutoring

Portland Meet Portland understands that learning English and feeling comfortable communicating is essential to newcomers’ confidence building and success for in school, work and community. Immigrants and refugees arrive in Portland with varying levels of English and with a range of educational backgrounds: some have university and graduate degrees and others have never been in a classroom.  Most newcomers work in jobs that have shifting work schedules and mothers often have significant childcare responsibilities limiting their mobility and schedules. We therefore offer custom tailored and flexible English and Citizenship ESL learning opportunities, ranging from classroom instruction, to small in-home group sessions, and one-on-one tutoring specialized to a student’s level or professional language needs.
