The Literacy Council needs volunteers to teach people to read


A Rockford organization needs your help to teach people how to read.  The Literacy Council matches volunteer tutors to adults who want to improve their reading skills or speak English better.  Tutors work on things like phonics, reading comprehension strategies and writing.  You don't know how to teach reading, the Literacy Council educates their volunteers.  It is looking for people who are patient, can communicate well and can work with a student for at least two hours a week for the minimum of a year.  To become a tutor, you also need to be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma.


People interested in volunteering need to sign up for The Literacy Council's free New Tutor Workshop series.  It is six classes held on Tuesday and Thursdays starting October 2 at 12.30.  It will be at the North Suburban District Library at 6340 North Second Street, Loves Park.  You can find out more information at or by calling The Literacy Council at 815-963-READ.
