All classes are free and open to any level of English language proficiency. Currently, all classes are still online due to the pandemic; however, as the pandemic lessons its impact we have begun to open up meetings as participants wish. However, please maintain your vaccinations and abide by CDC policy. Our schedule is in flux as new tutors and students join the program, and a few tutors have retired and/or moved away from the area so please contact Denise or the tutors directly for up-to-date information about our offerings. Individual and group classes are available several days a week. Please contact Denise Heikinen (deniseheikinen at for information about how you can join the program.
