Tutors Needed

June 07, 1998

Area schools and literacy programs use volunteers to help children or adults improve reading skills. Among those in need of volunteers are:

Partnership for Learning, an agency of the Baltimore state's attorney's office, to work with first-time juvenile offenders who have reading difficulties and learning disabilities. The partnership will train prospective tutors in the multisensory, phonics-based Wilson Learning System of reading instruction. Contact: Mischa Green, 410-396-5092.

South Baltimore Learning Center, 28 E. Ostend St., which offers one-on-one tutoring to adults. Volunteers 18 or older, with a high school diploma or General Educational Development diploma and able to commit at least a year to the program, are sought to tutor students in basic reading, spelling and math. Contact: Amy Decker, 410-625-4215.

If your school or organization is seeking volunteer reading tutors and would like to be included in this listing, call Sundial, 410-783-1800, and enter code 6130.
