Become a Tutor Do you want to make a difference in your own community? You have neighbors that are struggling to read. Do you want to teach them to read a book to their child or grandchild or to fill out a job application? You also have neighbors that are struggling to communicate. Do you want to teach them how to have a conversation with their doctor or their child’s teacher? Can you commit to an adult in your community for at least 1 year? Can you work with another adult for 2 hours each week to become literate? Help them to become confident, achieve their goals and make your community a better place for all of us. Join us by becoming a literacy tutor…give the gifts of reading and communicating to someone who lives or works in your community. You will be able to tutor in your local community at a public building (libraries are a great spot) at a time that works for both you and your student. Making a positive difference in someone’s life, can make a positive change in our whole world. Many tutors report that they have learned so much more than they expected.
