Training workshop for prospective English as a Second Language tutors

booksThe Pioneer Library System’s Cleveland County Literacy Services Department will host a tutor training for prospective volunteer tutors at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, in the Lowry Room at Norman Public Library Central.

This training is specifically designed for volunteers who want to work with learners of English as Second Language in Cleveland County.

The library provides free one-on-one tutoring for adult learners, both for ESL students and also for native speakers of English who need help with their reading. Services are offered by county, with tutors and students meeting at one of the system’s hometown libraries.

Each prospective tutor must take part in one training before being placed with a student they will work one-on-one with on literacy skills.

Tutors must be high school graduates, ages 18 and older. Tutors will receive information at the tutoring session as well as a plan to follow as they work with their students.
