A Handbook for Tutors Working with Adult ESOL Literacy Learners

The handbook below was developed for the Volunteer ESOL Literacy Tutoring group at Portland Community College in Portland, Oregon, USA. The handbook was developed based on a needs analysis. This resource is research-based and context-specific. I hope it can be of some use to you and that it might ultimately facilitate the process of immigrants and refugees achieving their personal goals.
