Tutor training

"Being a tutor is by far the most enjoyable volunteering experience I have had. It is wonderful to see people’s change of attitude towards math and English."

"I became involved as a literacy volunteer tutor because I firmly believe that everyone has the right to know how to read and understand what they are reading.  Some days there are spelling challenges, other days there are life lessons. EVERY week there is a reward in spending time with my student as we learn together and from each other.  I consider it a privilege to share my student's journey in learning and look forward to each week at Literacy North Halton with my student."
