Literacy Vollunteers of Bangor seeks tutors

Bangor -

BANGOR, Maine –¬† Demand for adult literacy services in the Bangor and Old Town areas is prompting Literacy Volunteers of Bangor to step up efforts to recruit and train volunteer tutors. LV-Bangor matches adult students with tutors. Tutoring is done at a time and place convenient to both student and tutor. Learners typically identify their goal, whether it is to fill out an application, study for a high school diploma or simply make incremental improvement to overall literacy. Fifteen hours of training are required to become certified as a Basic Literacy tutor. Training sessions are 6-9 p.m. beginning Monday, Sept. 12 and continuing through Monday, Oct. 24, excluding Columbus Day, at United Technologies Center, 200 Hogan Road in Bangor. Tutors come from all walks of life and need not have prior teaching experience. The course fee is $35. Scholarships are available. Register by calling Literacy Volunteers of Bangor at 947-8451, or email suzannefolsom@lvbangor.org.
