Read To Succeed is updating the program to make it easier for YOU to volunteer. Now you will only have to attend 4 hours of in-person training. You will choose an area of interest to you to focus on: early reading, advanced reading, basic or advanced math, English as a Second Language, or computer skills. Then you will use this web site to watch a few brief videos in your area of focus to complete the training.
To be added to the list to sign-up for the next tutor training, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615-738-READ.
Read To Succeed's Adult Literacy Program started in January 2005 to serve the following mission: The Read To Succeed Adult Literacy Program will address the basic literacy needs of adults in Rutherford County who want to develop their skills for personal and/or career development.
The Adult Literacy Program works with adults 18 years-of-age and older to provide one-on-one tutoring in basic literacy at no cost to the learner. The program provides a free 4-hour training course to teach volunteer tutors how to work with adults. The tutors are then paired one-on-one with adult learners. Throughout the year, inservice training is offered to the tutors at no cost. In addition, the program provides the basic literacy materials needed for the tutoring process. Read To Succeed currently has 53 tutor-learner pairs, though this number fluctuates throughout the year, usually peaking in the spring and summer.
The Adult Literacy Program also offers free ESL classes
at several locations throughout Rutherford County.
As a Read To Succeed Adult Literacy tutor, you will meet 1 - 2 times a week for an
hour or two each time with your designated learner. You will meet at a
mutually-convenient, public place. Tutors are required to first attend a 4-hour in-person training, along with online training, before they can begin. Once enrolled, tutors will be required to submit a monthly report. If you want to become a tutor, please call 615-738-READ or click
