All tutors are volunteers who meet for 1 or 2 hours a week in one-to-one sessions at the Adult Literacy Center or in area libraries. They each receive 9 hours of training in multi-sensory, structured teaching of word structure for reading and spelling. Tutors have flexible hours, Mondays through Thursdays 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Fridays 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Requirements and qualifications to be a tutor include:
"My student told me that he does not feel stupid at work anymore."
"I can see my student gaining confidence and self-esteem."
"Seeing Bill’s struggle first-hand, I learned to take things one step at a time."
"I really feel like I am contributing."
"I've learned to celebrate the little victories."
"Tutoring at the Adult Literacy Center is a valuable part of my life."
