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.

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.
