Free Training to Become a Volunteer Literacy Tutor

BECOME A VOLUNTEER LITERACY TUTOR AT THE LIVERMORE PUBLIC LIBRARY!

Can you see yourself helping an adult learn to read a medicine label, fill out a job application, write a letter, or study for the driver’s license exam? If so, become a volunteer tutor and help an adult improve their basic reading and writing skills and achieve their goals. No previous experience is necessary. Tutor training will prepare participants for in person and distance-tutoring. After successfully completing training, volunteers are paired with an adult learner. Pairs typically meet once or twice weekly for one to two hours each meeting. The results are positively life-changing for an adult who has struggled, and you’ll likely be amazed at what you learn along the way!

The next three-part Tutor Training will take place on tfrom 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. via Zoom:
Monday, May 3, 2021
Wednesday, May 5, 2021
Monday, May 10, 2021

(Please note: Participants attend all three sessions.)
