With an increase in attendance for students at the Literacy Partners Program, this leads to a need for more educators. The influx of adults seeking one-on-one tutoring to improve their reading, writing and English speaking skills leaves a shortage of tutors for this program. The Literacy Partners Program trains teachers based on their mission to establish a framework to provide literacy education to Kewaunee County residents. Bob Garfinkel, President of Literacy Partners, says the main problem on why tutors are so hard to find is the conflicting schedules between students and teachers.
Garfinkel adds places that offer literacy programs in the area are hard to find. For more information on how to apply to be a tutor, check out the Literacy Partner’s website.
