Ulster Literacy needs volunteer tutors

Sign Up Now for Fall Tutor Training Workshops

Can you imagine what life is like if you can't read? Ulster Literacy has a waiting list of adults who want to learn to read. If you can give an hour or two each week, sign up for the training now.

This workshop is to train adult volunteers to work in a one-to-one tutoring situation with adults who want to improve their reading and writing skills. To be a tutor one needs to be a high school graduate or hold a GED. The workshop will include methods and materials, cultural considerations, and discussions concerning the typical needs of persons seeking literacy assistance.
