LearningQuest, the adult literacy program for Stanislaus County, provides training for volunteers 18 years and older who would like to become a reading tutor for an adult.  The training will give new tutors the knowledge needed to teach effectively, including: the special dynamics of an adult learner, the differences in how people learn, the use of the Laubach phonics-based system of teaching reading, plus other literacy materials. All tutors receive ongoing staff support and there is no further cost for materials.  There is a small and one-time $10 fee to cover the expense of materials. If, for any reason, you cannot afford the cost of the training, please request a cost waiver when registering.
