PACE Yourself: A Handbook for ESL Tutors

PACE Yourself: A Handbook for ESL Tutors

PACE Yourself is for inexperienced or volunteer tutors of ESL. This handbook does not aim to make overnight experts of novices. Rather, the authors provide an easy-to-follow guide for people who want to tutor small groups of nonnative speakers of English but do not know how.

Reproducible forms, appendixes of resources, terminology, ESL publishers, and professional organizations of interest to ESL tutors add relevant, useful information. This handbook is designed to meet your needs as a beginning tutor of ESL. It should be a key to many hours of rewarding and successful tutoring.
