Volunteers Needed to Teach Adults Literacy Skills
Literacy Volunteers of Rochester has several one-hour preview sessions scheduled for anyone interested in becoming a tutor. After attending a preview, you may participate in one of our training workshops. Many adults are waiting for a tutor to help them to learn to read, write, or speak English, or to improve their math skills. To become a tutor, it is not necessary to have prior teaching experience or knowledge of a foreign language. For more information, please contact our office at 473-3030, or check our website at www.literacyrochester.org.
