Literacy Volunteers of Beaufort County will offer a tutor training class for prospective volunteers beginning on Nov. 9, at 9:30 a.m. in the conference room at Job Link on U.S. Highway 264 East in Washington. There will be three sessions that will include:  information about the organization and adult learning; using the language experience approach; teaching sight words and word patterns; combining reading theory and the writing process, increasing comprehension, testing procedures, lesson planning; and review of available books and materials. The class will be instructed by Pat Lurvey using the Pro Literacy America training materials.

The group is funded in part by the United Way and Beaufort County. Please pre register so that enough materials will be available.  Call 252-974-1812. You can help change someone’s life.
