English Language Learners


St. Joan of Arc literacy program offers 1-on-1 and small classes (up to 4 students at similar levels) for English language learning. Students can meet with a teacher at the church or virtually via facetime or Zoom for one hour to one and a half hours per week. Teachers are trained volunteers and are able to meet Mondays through Thursdays, 9 am-5 pm; Fridays, 9 am-11:30 am. New students will be scheduled for an English skills and goals assessment so they can be placed appropriately. We are also able to offer a virtual accent reduction class to a small number of our students.

Please email us at ell@stjoanofarcpowell.org with your name, cell phone number and email address or call 614-761-0905 ext. 340 with your information and Tess Mawhinney will get back to you as soon as possible to answer your questions and schedule your initial skills assessment.

Tutors and Conversation Buddies

We are always in need of tutors and conversation buddies who are at least 18 years old, and we are always eager to serve new students. We are also looking for a speech therapist to help students with pronunciation. We offer conversation buddies for our students to practice their speaking skills. The only language you need to know to teach is English.
