Posted on: December 21, 2012
Who are you helping? Adult students with the following types of goals: learning to read for the first time, improving their reading ability, helping their children/grandchildren with homework, understanding more about their jobs, or preparing for a GED program.
What are you doing? Tutors meet one-on-one with students twice per week to reach literacy-related goals using strategies and curricula provided during tutor training.
When do you meet? The DLC is open Monday-Thursday from 9am to 12pm and from 4:30pm to 8:30pm. Minimum commitment: 90-minute lessons twice per week (3 hours total per week). Lesson schedules are based on the availability of each tutor and student.
Tutors begin their service with a comprehensive training designed to provide a toolkit of reading/writing and language learning strategies to apply with Durham Literacy Center students.
