If you can read and write fluently, you can help an adult to read, write or speak English better. Literacy Volunteers - HBPL has tutor training workshops throughout the year. The 15-hour class teaches Literacy Volunteers of America methods for helping adults improve their skills. After taking the class, you are matched with one adult student. You meet two hours a week, morning, afternoon, evening or weekend. The Huntington Beach Library Adult Literacy Program has a collection of teaching materials, a computer lab and space in the library for tutor pairs to meet. We have two programs, the Adult Literacy Program at Central Library (714) 375-5102 and the Family Literacy Program at the Oak View Branch Library (714) 375-5104. We always need tutors!
