Volunteer Tutor Training Online Hybrid-Ellsworth (Morning Session)

Literacy Volunteers of Bangor will offer the online tutor training developed by ProLiteracy for its member organizations with a pilot hybrid starting in January 2019. The training is offered in partnership with Ellsworth Adult Education. By taking this training you can prepare to be an ESL or Basic Reading tutor. The introductory session is an orientation so you can attend to decide if you'd like to pursue the training. This first and the last sessions will be 'live' (in person) and the intervening 12-16 hours will be completed online with access to online discussion with a cohort and local facilitator supporting you. Participants must be self directed, and possess an intermediate level of internet and computer experience. Meredith Eaton and Annie Sargent will be the facilitators. Face to face sessions will be held 9:00a-11;00a on Tuesdays, 01/29/19 and 03/12/19.
