Tutor Training Workshops are hybrid and held in a combination of in-person and online. If you are unable to attend an in-person tutor training, please get in touch with us. We realize everyone has busy schedules and we will work with you to get you started. Online modules are available for both new and experienced Basic Literacy and English Language Learner tutors. These are offered as an introduction to various aspects of teaching English and math, but are also perfect as refreshers.
Regional Adult Education Network: All LVORC volunteers can attend any of the professional development workshops for tutors. You can meet other tutors and enhance your skills at free trainings offered by professionals in the field of Adult Literacy. To view a calendar of training and professional development workshops for volunteers, visit www.capitalnorthraen.org.
Teacher Training Plus: Funded by Dollar General, ProLiteracy’s Teacher Training Plus provides free training and coaching to tutors after they begin instruction. Webinars featuring best practices on a variety of topics are followed by just-in-time small group coaching sessions to help you implement the strategies from the webinars.
