A book designed for tutors or teachers of English as a Second Language. It provides lesson plans based on thematic units.

The ESL Tutor Toolbox is designed to provide tutors/teachers with practical lesson activities. The Toolbox activities provide tutors/teacher with ideas for lessons that can be adapted and or expanded depending on the student’s interest, goals and prior knowledge. The activities refer to a on one-to-one learning context but can be easily adapted to a group situation. Although the title is ESL Tutor Toolbox, the lessons and activities can also be used by instructors of adult literacy tutoring or classroom programs.

Each theme consists of units containing hands on activities and practical techniques to assist the tutor with lesson planning. Each unit contains: initial assessment questions, a complete set of activity/lesson plans, handouts and a list of other resources which would be useful in lesson planning a particular theme.
