LVM Literacy Unlimited at the Framingham Public Library is always looking for volunteers to become literacy tutors. We have two types of tutoring programs; ESOL for students learning English as a second language, and ABE for students learning how to improve their reading and writing skills. Tutors may work with one student, or they may teach a small group or class.
We offer information sessions; come and check out the program before you register. The next information session is November 20, 1-2:30pm, at the Framingham Public Library.
ALL Volunteer tutors must undergo an 18 hour tutor training before they can begin to work with a student. The next ESOL tutor training will be on Thursday afternoons. December 4, 11, 18 January 8,15, and 22, 1 - 4pm. REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED at our website - https://framinghamlibrary.org/literacy/our-program/become-a-tutor/
We will offer both types of training at various points throughout the year. Please contact our office to find the most up-to-date information regarding the next tutor training dates.
