Basic Adult Literacy Tutors work with adults who wish to improve reading and writing skills or to learn English as a new language. Math Tutors are also needed!
- Tutoring is conducted at the Turning Pages Learning Center, in libraries or in other locations convenient to both the learner and the tutor.
- Training for tutors and all materials are provided.
- Tutoring may be scheduled at any time (day or evening) seven days a week. Tutors and Learners usually meet twice a week in 1.5 hour sessions.
- Recently Turning Pages has seen an increase in the number of adults seeking math help. We especially need tutors who can explain fractions, decimals, and percents, and help bridge the gap into high-school level Algebra.
Community Advocates promote literacy throughout the community.
- These Volunteers share the startling statistics regarding literacy with their families, friends and co-workers.
- They facilitate community awareness and discussion about the importance of learning, encouraging others to improve their reading, writing and math skills.
- Community Advocates assist Turning Pages by addressing issues pertaining to the promotion of literacy with their elected officials, by letter, email or phone call.
- Becoming a community advocate is a flexible way to get involved in an area that matters most.
