LEE, Mass. — The Literacy Network of South Berkshire (LitNet) announced the promotion of Miguel Silva to Director of Tutoring.
Silva, who joined LitNet in 2021, formerly served as LitNet's Learner Liaison. In his new role, under the direction of Executive Director Leigh Doherty, Silva will oversee the enrollment of all new tutors and will serve as support for LitNet's existing 140+ volunteer tutors. He will retain his responsibilities as also being the point of contact for LitNet's 160+/- active learners, the majority of whom are immigrants seeking English language instruction.
Most recently, Silva taught Spanish at Berkshire Country Day School before joining LitNet. He is certified in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Silva, who is a native of Colombia, moved to the Berkshires at age 10.
"As an immigrant, and as someone who is fluent in English and Spanish and conversant in Portuguese, Miguel has allowed LitNet to forge a stronger bond with the immigrant community here in the Berkshires. He is well versed in the needs and ambitions of our learners, and his new role as Director of Tutoring is well-suited," said Executive Director Leigh Doherty.
