Volunteer Literacy Tutors are asked to commit to at least six months of tutoring twice a week. Tutors and students can communicate directly with one another to re-schedule meetings when one of them has an emergency, an appointment, or a planned vacation of up to 3 weeks. Please describe anything that would prevent you from tutoring for a major block of time in the next 6-12 months (no character limit).
Briefly describe what interests you about becoming a volunteer literacy tutor and any experience or special skills you have that are relevant to this volunteer position (no character limit).
DCLC Literacy Volunteers tutor one-on-one with either an ESL or ABE adult student.
As an English as a Second Language (ESL) Volunteer, you would tutor an adult from another country who is learning to speak English. You do NOT need to know another language.
NOTES ABOUT ESL TUTOR TRAINING:
As an Adult Basic Education (ABE) Volunteer, you would tutor an adult in reading and writing.
NOTES ABOUT ABE TUTOR TRAINING:
