Tutors in action

We provide one-on-one tutoring to school-age students and adult learners who struggle with reading. We use a scripted curriculum based on Orton-Gillingham principles. Many of our students show signs of dyslexia, the most common cause of reading problems. All training and materials are provided free of charge.

Volunteers must attend 12 hours of training. Each volunteer is paired with one student. Schedule is flexible based on the needs of the student and the volunteer. Given the training investment, a one year commitment is preferred. Volunteers should expect to tutor 2 hours a week once training is completed.

New tutors are always needed.

Training Schedule

August 19 & 20, 2019, 9 am - 2:30 pm

Additional training sessions will be scheduled in September, 2019.

Mission Statement

We provide evidence-based learning and developmental strategies in collaboration with other organizations to help individuals reach their full potential.

Description

The Legacy Center for Community Success (TLC) was formed in 2004 by Dr. Richard Dolinski to identify outside-the-classroom barriers to education and collaborate with other organizations to provide interventions that allow all children, youth and families to flourish and thrive. TLC has four organizational units:

  • Literacy Services (formerly the Literacy Council of Midland County)
  • Early Childhood Development
  • Youth Development
  • Families

Additionally, one of TLC’s core competencies is the evaluation of program outcomes. Outcomes-based program evaluations provide multiple benefits, including a determination of whether and to what extent a program is effective in achieving its objectives.
