Adult Volunteer Literacy/ESL/Basic Math Tutor Introduction
Tutor Training for Project READ
Thank you for wanting to be a tutor with Project READ! Project READ tutors provide free basic reading, basic math, and/or ESL tutoring to adults in our area in a public community setting (like the library) or in an Adult Ed Classroom at Parkland College or at the Urbana Adult Education Center. We offer support and training for our tutors so that they are best equipped to work with the learners on their goals. In order to provide these tutoring services, we ask that volunteers commit to tutoring at least 2 hours every week.
If you have not already registered as a Project READ volunteer, please do so now at this link.
Our training is a combination of face-to-face sessions, online articles and optional teacher observations. All of our tutors complete at least 14 hours-worth of training in some convenient combination of these options (with a minimum of 4 hours of in-person training).
Please sign up below for an introductory in-person training session. PLEASE NOTE THE LOCATION of the training for the date you choose. We offer tutor training at various locations around the Parkland College District, and we often offer special topics for continuing training. You can find a general map of the Parkland campus here and to specific rooms in the main building here.
You may choose to start your on-line portion of training at the Illinois State Library site. Please save a screenshot of the last page of each section and paste or print it with any required written assignments into a document to send uswhen you have completed them all. You are NOT required to do all of the modules, but we do want you to complete modules 2, 3, 4, 6, 10, 11, 12 and 13. Learn more at your first Intro to Tutoring session.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
We look forward to working with you,
Dr. Amanda Harris, Donna Camp, Sue Gallo, Joanne Murray
