Are you looking for a an opportunity to make a positive difference in your community? Both new & native adult residents need help with English skills to participate fully in our society. Enjoy this meaningful and interesting volunteer job and give a priceless, life-changing gift to learners in our diverse population!
Our next tutor training and orientation will be held Saturday, June 10, 2017, from 1-5 PM at the Pleasanton Library. No advance preparation is necessary.
Pleasanton Library's Adult Literacy Program will train you to help adults improve their English skills. Volunteers serve as one-on-one or small group tutors, lead weekly English Conversation Practice Groups, provide Citizenship Test preparation, or host Book Clubs for English Learners.
We welcome native English speakers and multi-lingual volunteers; our tutors come from all over the world. If English is not your first language we ask that you speak with a minimal accent for ease in communitcating with your student. Patience, the ability to work with people from various backgrounds, and familiarity with American culture are equally important.
Most tutors meet with their students once weekly for 90 minutes; the library supplies tutoring materials at no cost to participants.
