American Citizenship Preparation

These FREE classes prepare adults to pass the American Citizenship Test. We focus on questions used by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) and offer practice tests. We also assess each student and tailor instruction to meet their needs. Students have a better chance of becoming U.S. citizens, thanks to our individualized instruction and the high-quality content offered in our classes. We will help you fill out INS test forms and applications. Classes, which are designed with the special needs of adult learners in mind, are conveniently located at our two regional adult learning centers in Willimantic and Danielson.

English-as-a-Second-Language Instruction

If you are 17 years old or older, and not enrolled in public schools, you can take our FREE classes in English speaking, listening, reading and writing. Attend classes in the morning, afternoon or evening at one of our many convenient locations. We focus on English skills that you can use in your daily life, on the job, in stores, and in school. Call us today for more information.

2-Generational/English-as-a-Second-Language Family Literacy

Through EASTCONN’s multi-generation family literacy program, instruction and support is offered to encourage families to read and learn together. If you live in Windham or the Willimantic area, you may be able to take FREE English classes while your children attend Head Start or Early Head Start. If you qualify, both you and your child can join this exciting educational program. Regular attendance is required. Call today to determine your eligibility and get started.

Volunteer Tutoring Opportunities

We are seeking volunteer tutors!

Our literacy program provides free tutoring to EASTCONN adult education students who need help with basic instruction in reading, writing, and math. Tutoring can take place with one-on-one with a student or in a group setting at an EASTCONN location under the supervision of an EASTCONN staff member. Each volunteer is matched to a student/program by examining the needs of the student(s), the location and time of classes and the volunteer's interests. All volunteers must complete a background check paid for by EASTCONN. Learn more or call us and apply today!
