Adult Literacy Action to offer tutor training; tutors, aides sought

The Penn State Beaver Adult Literacy Action (ALA) program will host a Tutor Training Workshop from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 22, on the subject of “Math 101 - Teaching Math for GED 2014 and the CCS” at the Beaver ALA office.

To register for the workshop, contact ALA at 724-773-7810 by Monday, July 21. In addition, the ALA program is seeking volunteer tutors and classroom aides. Tutors work with students on an individual basis and assist them with reading, writing, mathematics, English as a second language or General Educational Development test preparation.

Tutors must have a four-year college degree or currently be enrolled in a four-year degree program. Classroom aides work with teachers at ALA’s GED and family literacy sites, and are not required to have a degree.
