Volunteer Tutor Training will take place on May 25 & June 1 from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. at the Lon Nuell Literacy Center in First Baptist Church, located at 200 East Main Street.
Read To Succeed has updated their training program to make it easier for YOU to volunteer as a tutor. Instead of 12 hours of in-class training, volunteers will now attend 4 hours of class, then will choose an area of interest to focus on (beginning reading, intermediate reading, advanced reading, basic or advanced math, English as a Second Language, or computer skills). The remainder of the training is completed online through area-specific instruction.
Tutoring is an extremely rewarding volunteer opportunity. Currently our tutors are assisting adults in earning GEDs, going to college, reading to their children, improving job skills, and so much more. Helping someone through this process is as rewarding for the tutor as it is for the learner. Many tutors also enjoy sharing their love of reading (or MATH!) with their students.
Read To Succeed is in need of more volunteer tutors. Tutors are carefully paired with their learner based on personality, skills, and interests. Each tutor must complete the training before being paired with a learner. Tutoring sessions are arranged at a mutually convenient time at a public place in the community.
