SPRINGFIELD, Feb. 19, 2021 — Lincoln Land Community College is looking for volunteer tutors to assist with the adult education program. Volunteers are needed to help adults improve their reading, math, writing and/or English language skills.
“In light of COVID-19, we are offering multiple formats for tutoring, including face-to-face following health guidelines, remote and a combination of the two. If you are patient, enthusiastic and have a desire to help others, please consider volunteering as a tutor. We can help volunteers navigate the remote tutoring experience,” says Marybeth Hentrich, literacy coordinator.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old with a high school diploma or its equivalent. LLCC will provide training, materials and resources for tutoring.
The time commitment will be a minimum of one hour a week (although some volunteer for two or three hours per week), and times are flexible based on each tutor’s availability. Tutors primarily work with students Monday through Friday but can also volunteer on the weekend.
The volunteer tutoring program is made possible through a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a division of the office of the Illinois Secretary of State, using funds designated for literacy.
