The following message is brought to you by the Brunswick Community Library, on behalf of the Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County, whose efforts we applaud and support:
Do you want to change a life for the better? Become a tutor! We can train you to help someone learn to read, write, and/or speak English.
The Fall Tutor Training will be held at Faith Lutheran Church, 50 Leversee Road, Troy. This training will be offered on six Tuesdays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., starting on September 11th and ending on October 23rd.
As a tutor trainee you will begin with a 3-hour Orientation/Introduction to Tutoring, followed by two Basic Literacy and/or English Language Learning sessions. A Successful Tutoring workshop concludes the training. A $35 materials fee is requested; scholarship money is available if needed.
