Registration is underway for Project Read-Menlo Park’s May Tutor Training, designed to show volunteers how they can help eager local residents learn to read better and attain their personal, educational and vocational goals. The tutor training session begins Tuesday, May 8 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma Street. The session continues on Saturday, May 12 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The final session is a follow-up meeting for tutors who have started regularly tutoring their students which will be held in June.
During the informative training sessions, volunteers hear from current tutors who have been working one-on-one with their students to improve their reading, writing, and communication skills. Additional training workshops and tutor meetings are scheduled throughout the year.
“To join Project Read as a tutor is to embark on an adventure, an adventure demanding patience, creativity, and imagination,” said Jean Eastman, a tutor for over 10 years. “All of us want the best for our students and look for ways to ensure their success.”
For further information, or to register for the upcoming tutoring session, call Project Read-Menlo Park at the Menlo Park Library at (650) 330-2525 or e-mail Alice Bradshaw at firstname.lastname@example.org.
