TUtor training

Volunteer tutors help students make positive changes in their lives. As tutors work with students to improve English literacy, students are moving toward achieving life goals.

 

Tutor training is a two step process.  All our tutors must first complete Adult Basic training.  Our Adult Next Level training is an optional second step for those interested in tutoring English as a Second Language (ESL) or GED exam preparation.

 

For more information and to register for any of our program trainings, please call (517) 485-4949.

Seating at training sessions is limited.

 

ADULT BASIC READING WORKSHOP

All volunteers first complete CALC’s Basic Reading workshop to become a successful tutor. Workshops are in two parts, one on each of two successive days. No prior experience is necessary, and CALC provides lots of free materials and support. There is a $15 refundable deposit for the tutor's manual, cash or check only.

All sessions are from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday evenings. Space is limited so please RSVP.  Please call (517) 485-4949 to register.

CHILDREN's Literacy

Through the READ to SUCCEED program, MSU students tutor an at-risk child on a one-on-one basis, focusing on improving their student's reading and writing skills. Tutors will be providing direct instruction to their student - this is not a homework help program! We provide training and constant support for our tutors and prior to tutoring all prospective tutors must attend our training sessions. Interested tutors must come to our 324 Erickson Hall office prior to training to fill out the necessary paperwork and register; they may tutor either for credit or as a volunteer. We are always in need of tutors. Tutoring takes place twice per week for an hour each meeting. All tutoring sites are off campus, and carpooling can be arranged.
