Literacy Volunteers of MA at Morrill Memorial Library, Norwood

  • 42 people are interested

If you would like to help adult learners improve their reading, writing and conversational English skills please join us for our Tutor Training Orientation to learn about becoming a Basic Reading or ESL Tutor.

Tutors must have a High School diploma, attend an orientation session and complete our 18-hour training. No teaching experience is required, but volunteers should be patient and sensitive to the needs of adult learners.

Tutors meet with students 2 hours per week, and we ask for a one-year commitment.

Update: All in-person activities have been suspended due to Covid. We are currently keeping a list of those interested in volunteering, as we hope to host an online orientation and offer our tutor training online in the fall. We are grateful to the people who are trying to help at this time.
