Objectives: In this unit you will
  1. Learn about navigating this blog
  2. Obtain contact information for your online mentor
  3. Study the online course objectives and compare them to your expectations of this course
  4. Consider your responsibilities as a volunteer tutor
    Estimated time for completing this section: 1 hour

    Before you continue, do you have the information you need to get started?


    If you are reading this text, you are committed to learning how to tutor an adult. Before you go any further, have you completed a volunteer orientation or information session with your volunteer organization? If not, we recommend that you do so now.

    You may:

    1) Call your organization and sign up for the next onsite tutor training session.

    2) If another session isn't scheduled for several months, ask if you can take this training instead. Make sure that the program director and executive director of the program know about this online course. You will need help and guidance at times, which this course will direct you to do.

    3) Out of state participants will not receive a certificate after completing this workshop. You will need to make arrangements with your local program to get certified after completing this course. Virginia residents may call the Resource Center at 804-828-6521 and ask for the literacy specialist in charge of Tutor Training for a certificate if your local program does not provide one.
