Become an essential part of an adult student’s life by signing up to be a tutor at the Literacy Council. The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County will be holding tutor training on Monday, October 28 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., Wednesday, October 30 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m., Monday, November 4 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. and Wednesday, November 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  After 12 hours of training, outstanding volunteers are equipped to teach Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language (ESL) classes to adults.

Tutors do not need knowledge of any foreign language, nor do they need formal teaching experience. There are only three qualifications needed to become a tutor at the Literacy Council, a desire to help adult students, patience and commitment to three hours of tutoring per week. Tutor hours vary according to the tutor’s schedule. The Literacy Council is especially in need of “Night Owls” who would like to volunteer to tutor in the evenings.

In addition to tutoring at the Literacy Council’s main location in Sugar Land, volunteer tutors are needed at over 20 outreach locations across Fort Bend County.  Outreach locations allow tutors to be placed at a location near their home.

If you are interested in impacting someone’s life by becoming a tutor, please contact the Literacy Council at 281-240-8181 or visit the website at www.ftbendliteracy.org.  The next tutor training dates are October 28 & 30 and November 4 & 6. Help us to “Change Lives Through Literacy!”
