Wilcrest - Supplemental Classes

Morning, afternoon, & evening tutors needed

Needed: Throughout 2016

We have a robust schedule of supplemental classes at Literacy Advance, designed to add extra detail or focus on different skill areas than regular classes. Supplemental classes are of shorter duration - between 1 and 8 lessons is usual - so can be a great option for a volunteer who can't commit to a 48-hour class session. Topics include resume-writing, conversation for English learners, computer literacy, and more.

Tutors needed right now for: Resume Classes, and Basic Computer Classes

supplemental classes Classes take place: Monday - Saturday (various start times available)
Time commitment: Very flexible! Tell us your availability and we'll start from there.
Contact Diana if you want more information about tutoring a supplemental class.

Wilcrest - Substitute Tutors

Ongoing need

We're trying to increase our numbers of available subs! If you think you could help, even occasionally, please get in touch.

wilcrest esl We regularly need substitute tutors. Sometimes tutors need to miss a class; sometimes last minute, in an emergency; other times we know weeks in advance and can plan.

Substitute tutors can say NO at any time! Being a substitute just means you're on a list to be called if necessary. When we call, if the time or date we need doesn't suit you, just tell us, and we'll call the next person.
wilcrest abe
Contact Heather, the Wilcrest Program Manager, if you're a trained Literacy Advance tutor and are willing to be on the substitute list.

If you like the sound of this opportunity but have not yet been trained at Literacy Advance, please start by contacting Maxine, our Volunteer Manager.
