The Lake County Library’s Adult Literacy Program has scheduled an in-person Tutor Training for the New Year. The free training will take place from 10 am to 3 pm on Thursday January 12th, 2023, at the Lakeport Library.
Hosted by Literacy Program Coordinator, Georgina Marie Guardado, and facilitated by Lake County Literacy Coalition Board Member, Pam Klier, participants will learn useful techniques for teaching adults to read.
No experience is needed and ongoing support and workshops are provided for tutors. Upon completion of the training, tutors will be matched with adult learners in a variety of settings around the county. Those who would like to help adults improve their literacy skills are encouraged to attend.
More than 43 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level, according to the ProLiteracy organization. Becoming a tutor can help someone to a better future. In addition to teaching literacy, the program offers services for GED and High School Equivalency test preparation, digital literacy, citizenship application assistance, written driving tests, and more.
