If you have an hour a week to help an adult read, write and speak English, you will want to attend Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley’s tutor training workshop starting Monday, August 4 at the St. Charles Public Library.

Literacy Volunteers literally change the lives of their adult neighbors by helping them to understand English more effectively. This helps our neighbors to become confident and independent members of our community.

During the free workshop, you will learn methods used to teach adults English while discussing the issues people face when they have little knowledge of the American culture. You will explore cultural awareness, student survival skills, conversation techniques, practice drills and more.

Our learners live or work in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia or Elburn. You can teach morning, afternoon or evening as your schedule allows. Many tutoring locations exist including the St. Charles Public Library, Batavia Public Library, Geneva Public Library and Town & Country Public Library in Elburn.

Volunteer tutors do not need to know a second language or have a background in education to help. According to learners, the most successful tutors are good listeners and give practical information. Staff members will provide continuing support.

To register or for more information about the workshop, visit www.lvfv.org or call 630-584-4428.
