The Adult Learning Centers help adult students improve their communication skills in English (ESOL and basic literacy). We offer two types of programming, available at more than 40 libraries in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.
There are series-based classes, held year-round in 10-week cycles. Most classes meet two days each week, for two hours each day. Select classes meet on Saturday mornings for four hours. Classes are for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level students. Students must attend an information session to register for classes, and registration is required in order to attend these classes.
There are also drop-in informal classes for intermediate and advanced level English learners who want to practice their conversation skills, as well as beginner and intermediate level classes for those preparing to take the United States Citizenship exam.
Currently we are seeking to hire ESOL instructors to teach and assist with our classes at 5 locations in the Bronx and 2 in Staten Island and 2 at Riker's Island.
The main responsibilities for the instructor are to work with ESOL Specialist III and the ESOL Site Advisor to implement the goals and activities of the adult education program. To teach and assist adult ESOL students in improving their English skills (reading, listening, speaking, writing). To instruct adult ESOL students in classes and learning experiences which will lead to the achievement of their educational and personal goals. To assist in the managed enrollment process to recruit and maintain students and student records.
