Tutors are trained to tutor Basic Reading and English as a Second Language students to help foster their personal growth by enabling them to achieve broader personal and professional goals.
Most tutors dedicate 2 - 4 hours a week to the program. Tutors usually meet with students at the bookstore or their local library once or twice a week for 1-hour sessions. At home, they spend 1-2 hours creating lesson plans appropriate for their students' level and needs.
In-services and workshops for continuing education and support of tutors are provided on a continuing basis.
Curriculum materials, workbooks, advice and supportive smiles are always available to all tutors in the LVSCNY office at 63 North Street in Monticello.
You can work as little as one or two hours a week and make a big difference.
