Tutors needed – Alachua County Library

Alachua County Library Literacy Program

From their website:
Literacy tutor training is offered once or twice each year with additional subsequent booster sessions.

Our new approach to training literacy tutors and serving adults who struggle with reading involves a fascinating, dynamic and intense training called NOW! Foundations. Tutor training is offered in the evening, twice per week for a total of 24 hours of instruction (spaced out over time) and hands-on practice in this research-based approach that helps learners develop skills to read independently. Literacy tutors must be able to commit to the entire training.

This unique approach is not yet offered in any other volunteer driven adult literacy program or library-based literacy program in Florida. Be part of the cutting edge at Alachua County Library District!

Once matched with learners, tutors should be available to meet twice a week for tutoring sessions that last 60-90 minutes at the Library Branch location that offers privacy and convenience for the learning pair.
