Training consists of a free three-hour Tutor Training Orientation, a follow-up interview with a Tutor Coordinator and subsequent in-service seminars. Orientations are held periodically throughout the year.
At the Tutor Training Orientation, volunteers will learn about what is required of tutors, how the DLC supports its tutors and the various tutoring options. Other literacy volunteer opportunities are discussed so that attendees can determine which volunteer activity best suits their needs.
During the follow-up interview with the Tutor Coordinator, the various tutoring options will be discussed – Basic Literacy, GED, ESL (English as a Second Language), individual and group tutoring. Soon after the interview, the matching process will be completed so that volunteers can begin tutoring.
If you are interested in becoming a tutor or volunteering to assist on the training team, email our Training Coordinator or call 252-216-7773.
A Tutor Coordinator and Mentor is assigned to each tutor. They maintain contact with the tutor and are available to answer questions, address problems and offer support in determining how to proceed with tutoring.
In addition to the initial Tutor Training, the DLC provides periodic In-Service Seminars to further enhance the tutoring experience. These brief, hands-on seminars are free to all DLC tutors and cover a variety of subjects related to tutoring (grammar, pronunciation, phonics, literacy resources, etc.). Tutors are invited to give feedback and suggestions about future seminars. Seminars are held periodically throughout the year.
