English Literacy Volunteers Needed
Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley is holding a free tutor training workshop for people who want to help adults read, write, speak and understand English. The 4-session workshop will be held from 6:30pm to 9pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, Jan. 12, 14, 19 and 21 at the St. Charles Public Library.
The workshop teaches the methods used to teach adults English while discussing the issues people face when they have little knowledge of the American culture. After you are trained, you are matched with one adult learner and teach for one hour per week at a time and location that is convenient. Volunteers teach in various public locations such as the St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia and Town & Country Public Libraries.
Volunteers do not need to know a second language or have a background in education to help. According to learners, the most successful tutors are good listeners and give practical information. Staff members provide continuing support.
