HCC Adult Education Program Seeking Volunteer Tutors

FREEPORT (WIFR) — 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:

• Tuesday, March 12, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
• Thursday, March 21, 1:00 – 2:00 p.m.

The informational meetings will address questions, including:

• What does a volunteer tutor do?
• How much time does it take?
• What experience do I need?

The support and encouragement that tutors provide is a key influence in the lives of students. In fact, students show greater achievement when they have individual instruction. Just by volunteering an hour or two a week, tutors are a source of inspiration. But the rewards are not only for the students.

This program is rewarding for the volunteers as well. Volunteer tutors help their communities by improving the lives of residents, one person at a time. Volunteers tutor when it is convenient – morning, afternoon or evening and in an academic subject area that they enjoy.

For more information about these meetings, please contact Esther Mayer at 815-599-3538 or at esther.mayer@highland.edu
