Adult volunteers who are interested in helping adult learners improve their lives through increased literacy skills will find this tutoring opportunity to be very rewarding. Following training, each volunteer is paired with either one adult learner or a small group of adult learners and will facilitate weekly classes for approximately 2 hours. Classes are held in our office which is located in the Silas Bronson Library in downtown Waterbury, or in other public locations including libraries, churches, museum, etc. Classes can also be held virtually via Zoom, Facetime, Google Meets, etc. if the tutor and student feel more comfortable doing so.
