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 two-four times a year. We have revamped our workshop which now includes two virtual sessions of approximately two and half hours each via Zoom during the week day evenings and one in-person session on Saturday morning. The workshop does have 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).
Session 1: September 8, 2022, Thursday evening 6:30-8:30 pm (via Zoom) and Session 2: September 10, 2022, Saturday 8:30 am – 2 pm (in person in the conference room at the United Way House). Registration is required.
