Volunteers! From creating tutor tools to to promoting our posts on social media, there are plenty of ways you can help further the mission of the Hoosier Hills Literacy League. Contact us, and we'll plug you in!
Tutor Ready is a new on-line resource that will prepare tutors and continue to equip tutors as they work with students. Here they can get as much training as they need to feel comfortable, and they can return to the site for refreshers as they the need arises. Each module is about 15-20 minutes long, and includes research based methods about how to teach reading to adults, and includes videos or real tutors using those techniques with real students.
There are a total of 52 modules, and the entire curriculum can be completed in about 12-15 hours. Since many of our volunteer tutors have prior experience in education, we require that they view at least 4 hours of the curriculum.
After they complete the minimum of 4 hours, new tutors will be given a tutoring assignment.
