Project Read-Menlo Park seeks new volunteer tutors
Registration is underway for Project Read-Menlo Park’s next tutor training, designed to show volunteers how they can help local residents learn to read better and attain their personal educational and vocational goals.
The next tutor training sessions begins Tuesday, February 8 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at the Menlo Park Library, 800 Alma Street. The session continues on Saturday, February 12 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm The final session is a follow-up meeting for tutors who have started meeting with their adult students. That session will be held Tuesday, March 22 from 6:00 to 8:30 pm
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, recipient of the 2010 Lee Romasko Tutor Legacy award. “All of us want the best for our students and look for ways to ensure their success”
