What is this training all about?

We have found that there are many reasons a person may not be able to read, write or understand English. They might have grown up in an area or home where education was not valued, or they may have left school at a young age to help their family by working. Or they might been educated in another country, in another language, and now they are trying to build a life in America. There are many reasons a person cannot read. Now you can be the reason they CAN. It is a transformative experience for the student and often for tutor as well. Won't you join us?

Are you ready to release your Inner Teacher?

One Tutor-One Student

The essential interaction: one tutor with one student. It is during these sessions that LVA-CA's Mission becomes reality. Over time, with mutual respect, earnest effort and compassion, the impossible becomes possible.

Training the Tutors

Preparing volunteer tutors to teach someone a skill we take for granted is our organization's greatest challenge. Through the dedication of our trainers and tutors our Mission bears fruit in the most remarkable ways.

Conversation Groups

These small gatherings provide students with the opportunity to practise what they have learned and expand their vocabulary the "old-fashioned way" - through conversation.
