Volunteer tutors are the heart of the Dominican Literacy Center. After attending an Orientation or the Tutor Training Workshop, tutors are matched with an adult learner whose interests and schedule are compatible. To be certified in the Laubach method a volunteer attends the Tutor Training Workshop in February, May, or October. This workshop is required for all tutors.
New Tutor Orientation Required for all new tutors before they are matched with a student. Currently, tutor orientations are available Thursday evenings by appointment. Tutor orientations will be held every 3rd Tuesday of the month, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. starting December 2015.
When can I tutor? Tutoring is offered on site at the Dominican Literacy Center Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am - 8:00 pm, and Friday and Saturday, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Tutors give two hours a week to a student. Materials are easy to follow and assistance is available for tutors from the staff.
