The Literacy Council of Northern Virginia will be hosting a Basic Adult Literacy Tutor training, which will be held Saturday, December 3rd and 10th, at the James Lee Community Center in Falls Church.  The training lasts from 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM and costs $40.

LCNV provides one-to-one free tutoring for adults who speak English, but read and write below a fifth grade level. Training occurs on two consecutive Saturdays where prospective tutors learn the basics of reading and writing instruction, and receive materials to work with adult learners.  Tutors are usually matched with a student during the training session.  If a tutor is not matched with a student, they will be contacted as soon as an appropriate student becomes available.  Participants must attend both sessions of the workshop and complete some pre-study materials in order to be considered for tutoring a student.

Tutors and students meet throughout northern Virginia in any public place.  Scheduling is done by students and tutors; pairs are encouraged to meet once or twice a week for approximately an hour and a half.  LCNV asks that tutors commit to working with a student for at least nine months.  There is a tremendous need for tutors in all areas – please consider joining us!
