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.

 

All our tutors must first complete Basic Reading Tutor Training which will help you get started with your student. From there, CALC provides additional resources, opportunities to connect with other tutors, and ongoing training and refreshers.

 

After completing Basic Reading Tutor Training, volunteers may also choose to train as tutors in the areas of English As A Second Language and/or GED Exam Preparation.

 

Basic Reading Tutor Trainings will be held at CALC at 1028 E. Saginaw (just east of the Pennsylvania and Saginaw intersection).

 

For more information, please call (517) 485-4949 or email volunteer@thereadingpeople.org
