Tutoring Makes a Difference in YOUR Community!
18 people are interested
We are a volunteer-driven program inside the Michigan City Public Library, serving children and adults in their pursuit of increased knowledge. We help in the areas of: reading, math, high school equivalency, citizenship, and English as a Second Language.
Tutors are matched with a student who has a learning need in an area of interest to the tutor, with materials and ongoing training provided by a professional educator.
Meeting on a weekly basis with the same student, both tutors and students benefit from the continuity of the relationship, and growth is often seen quickly. All tutoring takes place within the library, in a space that has been designed and set aside for this purpose.
There are no educational requirements for tutors; we ask for only two hours a week of your time and the desire to help build a brighter future for people in your community!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About Michigan City Public Library Learning Center

The mission of the Michigan City Public Library is to provide a center for information, education, culture and recreation for all patrons throughout their life span, through its collections, programs and special services.
The Learning Center at the Michigan City Public Libary provides free tutoring in the areas of reading and math for students in grades 1-12. Additionally we tutor adults who are working towards the High School Equivalency (HSE) exam,learning English as a Second Language (ESL), and citizenship.
Tutors are matched with students and typically meet twice a week for an hour at a time. Training is provided and ongoing in the areas of literacy/reading and English language skills. All materials are provided to the tutor; we only ask for your time and dedication!
While tutoring can take place anytime that the library is open, all tutoring between matched tutors and students is to take place on the premises of the library, and background checks, provided free of charge, are necessary prior to tutoring.
We'll work with your schedule.
