Many English as a Second Language (ESL) programs for adults have historically had poor results.
Most FREE ESL/tutoring programs require legal documentation for clients to enroll. This creates a barrier for individuals who are not documented.
Many immigrants also do not have the sort of stable schedule that can allow them to attend scheduled classes. This is usually the result of working multiple jobs or lack of transportation.
Often even the cost of a backpack with school supplies is a massive financial strain for our clients. Primarily those in a one-income household, or homes with multiple children. Laptops and low-cost internet will be provided so that they can utilize this service and complete homework/ work tasks from any location.
