Literacy Council of Montgomery County

  • 187 people are interested

Who we are: Founded in 1963, the Literacy Council of Montgomery County, Maryland is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to helping adults in Montgomery County learn to read, write and/or speak English.

Over 700 adults seek out a tutor to provide them with individualized instruction and mentoring through gaining up to a 5th grade level of reading and writing and/or English language proficiency.

What We Do: We train volunteers to tutor one-on-one or with small groups of adult learners who live or work in Montgomery County. ESL students are learning to master English language proficiency, which may include any combination of speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and/or writing.

Tutoring is an effective way to serve learners who ...

  • have limited schedule flexibility

  • may have difficulty keeping up in a group classroom setting

  • have not attended school before

  • who need privacy or confidentiality

  • who simply need to learn at their own pace

Volunteer Role:
Tutors work with students whose primary language is not English; helping them with reading, writing, listening comprehension, and speaking. Being a tutor is a year long commitment and we ask you to meet with your student around 2 hours a week.

Information Session Schedule:

Thursday, January 28th, 5-6pm Friday, January 29th, 1-2pm Saturday, January 30th, 6-7pm Tuesday, February 2nd, 4-5pm Saturday, February 6th, 11am-12pm
