Literacy Council offers tutor training workshop

Help another adult discover the joy of reading—become a volunteer literacy tutor!

The Literacy Council is offering a tutor training workshop at North Suburban District Library, 6340 N. Second St., Loves Park, on the following days in May: Tuesdays and Thursdays, May 8, 10, 15, 17 and 22. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

In a workshop series, volunteers learn techniques for teaching reading to adults. Registration is required at least one week before a session begins. After completing the free training, tutors are matched with a student for one-on-one instruction an hour or two each week at a variety of locations.

The Council also has other volunteer opportunities, including test scoring, reading, English or math classroom aides, library helpers, computer instructors and computer lab assistants.
