The Pioneer Library System’s Cleveland County Literacy Services Department has delayed its upcoming tutor training due to the threat of poor weather.
The event for prospective volunteer tutors has been moved to 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 8 at the Norman Public Library, 225 N. Webster Ave., in Rooms A and B.
This is a combined training for volunteers who want to work either with learners of English as Second Language or to who English is their first language, specifically in Cleveland County. Registration may be completed through the Cleveland County Literacy Office at 701-2682 or online.
The library provides free one-on-one tutoring for adult learners, both for ESL students and also for native speakers of English who need help with their reading. Services are offered by county, with tutors and students meeting at one of the system’s 10 branch libraries.
Each prospective tutor must take part in one training before being placed with a student they will work one-on-one with on literacy skills. Tutors must be age 18 or older and be high school graduates. Tutors will receive information at the tutoring session as well as a plan to follow as they work with their students.
