Fallbrook Library, Literacy Center need volunteers to help teach English

FALLBROOK – Fall is around the corner, and the Fallbrook Library and the Fallbrook Literacy Center are looking for people willing to teach local adults English.

Tutors do not need teaching experience as they will be given 12 hours of training and all instructional materials. Tutors must speak fluent English and “have empathy for the adult learner trying to acquire a new language” and be available for 1 1/2 hours a week for at least six months.

Because only English is spoken in the classes, tutors do not need to know their students’ native languages. Tutors will be assigned one to three students. Students are given an assessment test, so everyone in the group is at the same level. Library tutoring times are flexible, to be determined between the tutor and the students and the library.

The next tutor training sessions will be held on Saturday, Aug. 20, and Saturday, Aug. 27, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Community Room of the Poway Branch Library. Tutors must attend both sessions. The training is free and is hosted by the Laubach Literacy Council of San Diego County and the San Diego County Library.

For more information or to register, contact Jeannette Moyer at (858) 693-3609 or [email protected]. Trained tutors or teachers that have a couple of hours per week to donate are invited to call either of the Fallbrook Co-Directors: Sally DiVecchio at (858) 245-6426 or Pat Hensley at (760) 728-2294 for more information.
