Today sees the launch of WorldClassTutor a great new site to help Hispanics learn English as a second language and tutor children grades K-12. In particular those immigrants from a Spanish speaking background will gain much from this site.

Accompanying PDF files are also downloadable and printable for practice.    Many immigrants desire to learn English quickly but do not have the time or funds necessary. Now learning is affordable for everyone via downloadable videos[].

Example: Jose came to America for a better life. It embarrassed him that his English was so weak but he was too shy to enroll in a language class. He picks up English words here and there to help with his language skills. Jose's story could be echoed by millions of others across the USA. Now, there is a simple and affordable way to help Jose and others like him.

Led by Ms. Elisa Meri Ramirez Feliciano, students will be guided in practical everyday situations like filling out a job application or opening a bank account. Ms. Feliciano speaks both English and Spanish as a native. "I am excited about helping the Hispanic community in enabling them to become bilingual" says Ms. Feliciano. Education Director Gerry Hartigan feels strongly that videos offer something traditional classrooms can not. "Flexibility is the key to helping this hardworking population. Many Hispanics need to learn English as they have the time. That's what we allow them to do." claims Mr. Hartigan.
