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.  You may also email us at eslcoordinator@thereadingpeople.org - please include your name, telephone number, email address, and the workshop you would like to attend.  Seating at training sessions is limited.

ADULT BASIC READING WORKSHOP

All volunteers first complete CALC’s Basic Reading workshop to become a successful tutor. No prior experience is necessary, and CALC provides lots of free materials and support. There is a $20.00 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. Please call (517) 485-4949 to register.
