OG Readers New Tutor Training #1 | Eastside

Library Categories

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 of teaching 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 works with your schedule. The Library will provide all materials and training, as well as offer ongoing support. 

Volunteers should:

  • 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!

TOPIC: The first session of this training will introduce you to the OG approach and level 1 skills.
