By becoming a literacy tutor, you will learn of the positive impact you will have in someone’s life — not to mention truly understanding what it means for those who cannot read or “can” read but simply don’t understand what they are reading. When someone says to you, “Can you read this to me, I forgot my glasses?” there is the possibility that it means: “Can you read this to me because I can’t read it?”
All tutors must be trained and attend a workshop beforehand. Tutor training workshops are held three-four times a year. They are held on a Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 pm with mandatory ‘homework’ to be done beforehand*. Pre-registration is required. There is a $30.00 workshop fee that helps defray the cost of all training materials (we can offer a ‘workshop scholarship’ if needed). A lunch and refreshments will be provided.
* Due to Covid-19 our tutor training is being revamped and will include two sessions via Zoom and one in-person session. All sessions to be no more than two hours. Stay tuned for details and dates.
If you and your organization are interested in outreach and becoming tutors, we can bring our workshop to you. Just give us a call: 301-934-6488.
