Lake County Library System Seeking Tutors

Free tutor training session July 8
Rachel Dellinger

Struggling students, those with poor reading skills, and English language learners can get help at Lake County libraries. Training for anyone interested in helping these individuals by becoming a tutor will be conducted on July 8, 2014 in Tavares, Florida. This session will help new volunteers learn how to coach adults in one-on-one and small group sessions.

The Lake County Adult Literacy Program is designed to help adult learners improve their skills and meet goals such as being able to read the label on a prescription bottle, communicate with their child’s teacher, pass the GED, or complete an online job application.

No previous experience is necessary, and volunteers can work with as many or as few students as they like in the fields they feel most comfortable teaching, including basic reading and writing, English as a second language, and math. Trained volunteer tutors and adult learners meet at the library and have access to student workbooks, adult literacy materials and other library resources. The adult learner and the tutor will work together to identify learning goals and set the pace to achieving them!

For more information or to sign up for the free training session on July 8, contact Rachel Dellinger at (352) 253-6183 or at RDellinger@lakeline.lib.fl.us.
