New students from foreign countries who come to ACU every semester often need to improve their English or need help with their course work. UCC offers international students a chance for one-on-one tutoring. Every Wednesday night from 7-8 p.m., the students meet with their assigned tutors in the MAC to converse in English using Bible-based materials, or the Bible itself.
If you would like to be a tutor, all that is required is that you be a Christian, that you commit to regular attendance for one semester and that you agree to generally follow the study materials provided. No special training is required, but new tutors are given a “suggestions” handout and the coordinator is always on-hand to assist if needed.
Especially in the summers, ESL participants are invited on various outings to such places as the Abilene Zoo, Grace and Frontier Texas Museums, Abilene State Park and other activities. Tutors who can do so are encouraged to join in these outings.
If you are an international student who would like to participate in these programs, or if you would like to volunteer, contact Martin or Paulette Haught at 325-677-1148 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
