Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley offers free tutor training on July 10

If you are interested in helping an immigrant learn English, you will want to attend Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley's free tutor training workshop.

It will be held from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, July 10-19, at the St. Charles Public Library, 1 S. Sixth Ave.

Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley helps adults communicate in English by matching them with trained volunteer tutors who provide in-person or virtual lessons once each week at libraries and other public locations.

Volunteers do not need to know a second language or have a teaching background to help.

If you know English, you can teach English to one of the 30 adults who are waiting to learn.

The program provides material and instruction so anyone can help. Most learners are interested in practical English that will help them navigate American culture.

To register for the workshop, visit or call/text (630) 584-4428.
