Thank you Tutors
We just wanted to take a moment to express our sincere thanks for all you do!
Our tutors and our volunteers form the backbone of our organization. Without them, we could not do what we do. You can help us reach our goals and continue to provide free literacy instruction by becoming a volunteer today! We hope the information on this page will be a starting point for you.
Literacy Volunteers - Waterville Area's tutors are trained to provide student-centered tutoring services. Each tutor works with his or her learner to identify both short and long term goals and creates individualized lesson plans that focus on meeting those goals. Students and tutors use real-life materials, such as newspapers, job applications, recipes, and voting ballots, in their lessons.
Our tutors receive training to become certified ProLiteracy tutors. We provide opportunities for continued education and recertification through our workshops. Each tutor commits approximately 1 - 2 hours weekly working with his or her adult learner. Many of our tutors have been with Literacy Volunteers for years, enjoying the reward of improving the quality of life of their students through the gift of literacy.
While many of our tutors have educational backgrounds, we welcome tutors with any level of experience! As a tutor, your most valuable contributions to our volunteer programs are your time and your willingness to work with our students. Thank you for your help!

If you know someone who could benefit from one-on-one instruction, please refer that person to us. Many times, all it takes is a little encouragement an adult learner to take the first step. For more information about our learners, please visit our learners' page.
