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 Tuesday, September 9 at the St. Charles Public Library.
Literacy volunteers literally change the lives of their adult neighbors by helping them understand English more effectively. More than 40 adults are waiting to learn.
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, and Elburn. You can tutor 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.
