Library Literacy Program Hosts Final Tutor Training for 2023

Lake County, Calif. (September 15, 2023) — The Lake County Library’s Literacy Program has scheduled an in-person, no-cost New Tutor Training for Wednesday, October 18, 2023, at the Lakeport Library located at 1425 N. High Street in Lakeport. The training will take place from 11 am to 4 pm. Light snacks and refreshments, and training materials will be provided.

For more information or to register for tutor training, please call 707-263-7633 or email literacy@lakecountyca.gov.

Hosted by Literacy Program Coordinator, Georgina Marie Guardado, and facilitated by Lake County Literacy Coalition Board Member, Pam Klier, participants will learn useful techniques for teaching adults to read, write, and speak the English language. Bilingual Spanish speakers are encouraged to attend to support adult learners interested in learning English for the first time.

No experience is needed and ongoing support and workshops are provided for tutors. Upon completion of the training, tutors will be matched with adult learners in a variety of settings around the county. Those who would like to help adults improve their literacy skills are encouraged to attend.

More than 43 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level, according to the ProLiteracy organization. Becoming a tutor can help someone to a better future.

In addition to teaching literacy, the program offers services for GED and High School Equivalency test preparation, digital literacy, citizenship application assistance, written driving tests, and more. A Family Literacy program is also available to encourage family engagement and early literacy.
