OSWEGO, NY – OCO’s Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County Program is proud to announce that its latest tutor class has graduated and is ready to start tutoring Oswego County adults.
LVOC tutors complete an orientation and 15 hours of training which includes how to teach adults basic literacy skills.
As certified tutors, they are matched with adults who require their services.
They meet with their learner at an approved public tutor site at a mutually convenient time.
Tutor instruction includes basic literacy or other skills with materials and assistance provided to them by the LVOC office.
Volunteers who would enjoy helping adults improve their basic reading, writing, math, and English language skills are needed.
Tutors for English Language Learners (ELL) do not need to speak a foreign language.
Tutors must be high school graduates and be able to meet for 2 hours per week in a public location in their community.
Volunteers must have patience and be sensitive to a variety of learning styles.
