Volunteer in the New Year! The Oakland Literacy Council wants you to tutor English as a Second Language (ESL) adults in reading and listening/conversation skills. Volunteer tutors work 1-on-1 with adults two hours each week at the local library. Tutors are especially needed in the Novi & Farmington/Farmington Hills area.
To sign up for the tutor training, visit our website (oaklandliteracy.com) and click on Become a Tutor. The first part of the training is a self-paced online experience which takes about an hour. Then, there is a one-day onsite training to give you the necessary strategies and resources for effective tutoring. Then, you select the hours that you are available to meet with a student.
