About Merton Home Tutoring Service
Since 2009, Wimblecomm Member, Merton Home Tutoring Service, a small, independent charity, has been providing free English lessons to adults living in and around the London borough of Merton. Lessons are provided in learners’ own homes or in small classes which follow the ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) curriculum.
Their vision is to give learners the opportunity to learn English for everyday use, and:
- To build confidence in the use of English and help to reduce social isolation, and build independence.
- To help learners to understand more about the UK, its systems, cultural customs, and people.
- To encourage all learners to move towards greater community integration.
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)
Heidi Shrimpton, Director of Merton Home Tutoring Service, explains:
We offer free English lessons in and around Merton for people who are not able to get to formal college classes, because of cost, family situation or disability and who may become isolated at home.
Learners can have lessons in their own homes or in small, informal classes. Our friendly volunteer tutors help learners with everyday English to give them confidence and enable them to help themselves and their families understand and participate in local and national life in the UK. Learning English is the key.
Every year, we teach around 100 adults in classes or at home. Our learners come from a wide range of countries, from Asia and Africa to South America and Europe.
