Tutors are a critical part of our business model. Tutors bring compassion and enthusiasm.
At training, staff and volunteers will provide general information about adult literacy and explain how we provide ‘contextualized instruction’ to students. Our learning model helps men and women who read below a 6th grade reading level achieve life skill goals related to parenting, employment, civic engagement and health. Students--those who speak English and those who want to learn to speak English as a new language--meet these goals through the improvement of their English language skills.
Our goal for training is to match your desire to help a fellow adult learn to read with the instructional resources you need. We provide a curriculum teacher’s guide, student book and workbooks. We give you access to supplemental instructional materials including topical books on daily life and citizenship, story books, site word cards and other such items.
Before you leave, you can review our waitlist of students and select a tutoring session time that’s convenient for your schedule. We hope you’ll make tutoring a New Year’s resolution.
Kindly send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate that you want to be a tutor. We'll put you on the call list for our next tutor training session.
