"Tutoring an Adult Learner gives me the feeling of being a contribution to my community and our community is our home." - Tutor Margaret F.
You don't need any special skills, college degrees, or certificates - just interest, caring and patience. If you do have experience with teaching, tutoring and/or working with people with special needs, we can definitely make use of those skills. Instructional books and materials are available for checkout at the library, and consumable workbooks and teacher's guides can be yours to keep.
Scheduling is flexible - meet any time the library is open. Free study rooms and a learning lab are available for your use, along with software specifically for the adult beginning reader.
A volunteer orientation (conducted monthly) and background check is required to be a tutor. Please follow this link for orientation dates. Please call 951-736-2389 951-736-2389 if you have any questions before attending.
