Literacy Tutors

Tutor Information

Become a Tutor

If you are 18 years of age or over and have two hours a week to spare, you can help a neighbor learn to read, write, do math and/or speak English. No previous experience is necessary and you do not need to speak a foreign language.

Literacy Volunteers of Camden County offers free Training Workshops to teach volunteers how to become tutors. During this three-part workshop you will be introduced to our two programs - English as a Second Language and Basic Math and Reading Literacy.  You will learn how to determine an instructional starting point, as well as how to tutor utilizing our methods and materials. All books and materials are provided at no cost, and ongoing staff support is available.

As the Workshops progress, you will choose to become either an ESL, reading or math tutor. Then you will be matched with a learner who can meet at a mutually acceptable time and place. Our tutors are offered on-going professional support and in-service workshops. Under no circumstances can our tutors solicit money, goods or services from their students.

 

For additional information or to be added to the mailing list for the next tutor training session please email Susan Mulholland.

Current Tutors

We will hold periodic Meet and Greets for the tutors to meet each other and the Literacy staff. 

Important Reminders

Each tutor is required to keep track of their student’s tutoring hours.  Please use the provided form and return it to the office or email to Susan Mulholland at the end of each month.
