Adult Learning Centre offers tutor training workshop

The Adult Learning Centre has been promoting literacy in the Comox Valley since 1993.

The Adult Learning Centre has been promoting literacy in the Comox Valley since 1993, offering personalized tutoring services, free of charge, to adults in our community.

They actively promote literacy and lifelong learning through a range of services and community involvement. They are seeking individuals who are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor in our Adult Literacy Program.

Prospective tutors do not require a background in education, and many of our tutors come to us with a wide variety of employment backgrounds and life experiences. Often, the resource provided by our tutors is other than academic.

Students starting out on the journey to further learning are usually in need of support and encouragement. This person need not be an “expert teacher” but rather, someone with a field of expertise who enjoys sharing and interacting with others.

Our volunteers each contribute to changing lives, and our community, as they support individuals to achieve their full potential. The simple gift of helping others help themselves has been the inspiration for the volunteers.

Volunteer tutors each receive 15 hours of training to equip them with the tools they need to skillfully and confidently coach adult learners. With increasing numbers of learners coming for support with upgrading, individuals with expertise in math, English, and computer skills are also on our wish list.

If you would like to be part of this rewarding work, the Adult Learning Centre will offer a tutor training workshop starting in November. Contact Gabriel at 250-338-9906 or Gabriel@cvalc.ca  for more information.
