OG Tutor Training
Program Type:Tutor Training
Teens and adults are invited to become OG Readers Volunteer Tutors as part of our reading intervention program for kids! This 3 part training is based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach, used to teach kids who are struggling readers. These techniques employ multisensory learning, phonics based instruction, and other tools to demystify the process of reading.
Once training is complete, volunteers will work one-on-one with students in 1st - 4th grades. Volunteers and their learners will meet at least once a week at the library. You will be matched with a student that can meet based on your schedule. The Library will provide all materials and training, as well as offer ongoing support.
- Enjoy working with young people and exhibit patience
- Be 16 years or older, and if over 18, complete a background check
- Commit to the training sessions and at least one hour of tutoring per week for 6 months
- Be excited to share a passion for reading!
If you aren't able to attend one of the sessions, we invite you to attend the ones you can and we can send you digital training materials so you can catch up and still become a tutor. This training will be held in the Faulkner Gallery at the Central Library. Please note that the library opens at 10am. If you run late, please text staff at 805-273-8916 so that we can let you in. Light snacks will be provided.
