Our Staff

Our goal is simple: To provide high-quality, low-cost English instruction to our neighbors.

Since we opened our doors in 2004, the English School has been helping students change their lives through learning English. We do this by providing ESL classes for adults, citizenship classes, conversation practice and individual tutoring. We are able to provide these through talented teachers and dedicated volunteers. Join us in one of our volunteer programs today!

We are a warm community of students, teachers, and volunteers working together to improve lives through English language learning.
