OGLESBY — The Adult Education Community Tutoring program at Illinois Valley Community College will conduct free volunteer tutor training from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 5 and 12, in Room CTC125.
Volunteers must have a desire to work with adult learners and be willing to tutor two to three hours each week. Teaching experience isn't necessary, however, 10 hours of training through the program is required. Visiting an Adult Education classroom is an additional training component.
After completing training, volunteers have the option of tutoring in an English Language Acquisition class, an Adult Basic Education class or a High School Equivalency class. These classes follow the IVCC semester schedule in fall and spring. One-to-one tutoring might be available during summer months.
Free online tutor training is another option for volunteers whose schedules don't allow them to participate in the fall training sessions. For information, go to www.ivcc.edu/adulteducation/campus-and-community-tutoring.php.
To register for the training sessions, contact Angela Dunlap, campus and community tutoring coordinator, at 815-224-0479.
