Once a week for four weeks, digital literacy tutors are on-hand in a computer lab to help adults reach their learning goals. As learners study online in a self-paced training program, you inspire and encourage them, and address their questions and difficulties. You co-create a learning environment that is welcoming, encouraging, and low-stress. You get to know learners’ goals and learning needs. You help them to practice good study habits, and to discover that learning about computers and the Internet is worthwhile and rewarding!
