HCC Adult Education Program Seeks Volunteer Tutors
9/4/2014

Highland Community College Adult Education Program is seeking volunteers to tutor adults in Highland's District.
Volunteers tutor math, reading, writing or English as a Second Language. All interested individuals are encouraged to attend one of the following tutor informational meetings at the Freeport Public Library in a main floor meeting room:

- 3 to 4 p.m. Monday, September 15

- 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 16

The informational meetings will address questions, including:

- What does a volunteer tutor do?

- How much time does it take?

- What experience do I need?

Volunteers benefit their communities by improving lives of residents, one person at a time. Tutoring is at a convenient time and location for volunteers and in an academic area they enjoy.

The support and encouragement volunteers provide is a key influence in the lives of adult learners. In fact, adult learners show a greater amount of achievement when they have individual instruction. Just by volunteering an hour or two a week, tutors are a source of inspiration.

For more information about these meetings, please contact Esther Mayer at 815.599.3538 or at esther.mayer@highland.edu.
