Free Tutor Training Workshop 

The next tutor training workshop will be held on Saturday April 5 & 12, 2014 from 8:45 - 4:15 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Hagerstown.  Both sessions are required for certification, and you must preregister by clicking on the Volunteer Registration Quick Link on the left, by calling the office at 301-600-2066 or by coming to the office in person.  The training will prepare you to tutor a student in either basic reading or English as a Second Language.  

Saturday Office Hours 

The office will now be open on Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM - 12:00 noon.  We hope this will be helpful to tutors and students who cannot visit the office during our normal weekday hours.  As always, it is a good idea to call before coming in, 301-600-2066, just in case there is an emergency situation that prevents the volunteer from opening the office that day.
