The Adult Education Community Tutoring Program at Illinois Valley Community College will conduct free volunteer tutor training from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27 in Room CTC221.

Volunteers must have a desire to work with adult learners and be willing to tutor two-to-three hours each week. Teaching experience is not necessary, however, 10 hours of training through the program is required. Visiting an Adult Education classroom is an additional training component.

After completing training, volunteers have the option of tutoring in an English Language Acquisition class, an Adult Basic Education class or a High School Equivalency class. These classes follow the IVCC semester schedule in the spring and fall. One-to-one tutoring might be available during summer months.

Free online tutor training is another option for volunteers whose schedules do not allow them to participate in the January training session. Visit www.ivcc.edu/communitytutoring for information.

To register for the training session, contact Angela Dunlap, campus and community tutoring coordinator, at (815) 224-0479. Participants should bring a sack lunch as lunch is not provided.
