LLCC Looking For Volunteer Tutors

There will be an informational meeting for interested individuals through LLCC that will help with those who want to become volunteer tutors with the college’s adult education program.  The meeting will be held on January 19th, from 5-5:30 at the Taylorville Public Library at 121 West Vine Street. The session will provide details on the program, training, and requirements.  Volunteers are needed to help adults improve their reading, math, and writing skills.


Volunteers must be at least 18 years old with reading and/or math abilities.  Volunteers do not need a teaching degree. LLCC will provide all the training and materials the tutors need, including the books tutors will use with students and a handbook.


The time commitment is a minimum of one hour a week, although it can be two or three hours per week.  Times are flexible based on each tutor’s availability.  Tutors primarily work with students Monday through Friday but that can be flexible.  The volunteer tutoring program is made possible through a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a division of the Office of the Illinois Secretary of State, using funds designated for literacy.
