HCC Adult Education Program Seeks Volunteer Tutors
8/16/2016

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 A:

  • Thursday, September 15, from 5 to 6 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 20, from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

The informational meetings will address the following questions:

  • 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. By volunteering as little as an hour or two a week, tutors are a source of inspiration.

The Highland Community College Volunteer Literacy Program is part of the Adult Education department and is funded by a grant from the State of Illinois. Volunteer tutors are recruited, trained and matched with eligible adults wanting to improve their math, reading, writing or English language skills. Adult learners are tutored on a one-on-one basis or in small groups. Tutoring happens at convenient times and places throughout Highland's district.

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