A tutor training workshop will be presented by Literacy Volunteers of the Eastern Panhandle during October and November.
This 25-hour training course teaches the theories and skills necessary to tutor students in basic literacy and English as a second language. Participants who complete the course will be certified by Literacy Volunteers of America Inc. in both types of tutoring.
There will be 10 training sessions, all convening from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at Martinsburg Public Library. Session dates are Oct. 1, 8, 15, 22, 27 and 29, and Nov. 5, 10, 12, and 19. All sessions must be completed to qualify for certification.
There is no fee. The costs of trainers and all materials and books used in the course are covered by the organization, which asks, in return, for a year's commitment of volunteer service on the part of the trainees.
