VISTA — L.E.A.R.N., the San Diego County Library’s adult literacy service, will host Adult Literacy Tutor Training for volunteers interested in helping adult learners master basic reading and writing skills in English.
The two-part training will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Jan. 10 at the Vista Library, 700 Eucalyptus Ave. No experience is required and volunteer tutors are needed immediately. Opportunities are available countywide.
Once tutors have completed the Saturday training, they will be matched with adult students. Tutoring sessions are one-on-one and all books and materials are provided at no cost. Tutor/student pairs are determined based on their location, availability and preferences.
Kevin Vigil of the County’s El Cajon L.E.A.R.N. office, a veteran in literacy services, will lead the training.
“The training will include an overview of the issue of adults with low literacy skills, and a presentation of how to teach different literacy skills to adults,” Vigil said.
Training sessions are normally offered twice a month, one in North County and one in South/East County. Interested tutors may attend a tutoring session regardless of its proximity to their area of residence. Potential tutors are encouraged to pre-register by calling Vigil at (888) 466-0668 or via e-mail at [email protected]
