LVFSC COVID-19 Response Update

Mobile Learning Schedule:

Classes are open to all adult learners and interested community members.

  • Virtual Tutor Training, three consecutive Mondays, August 10, 17, and 24 from 3-5 pm.  All tutor training participants receive a free copy of Tutor 8, published by NewReaders Press, our Proliteracy affiliate, ongoing tutoring guidance from a team of supporters after training, and an instruction binder. After LVFSC provides training, tutors are paired with a compatible student.

LVFSC is currently focusing on training tutors for virtual tutoring using the Freeconferencecall video chat platform (at no cost to tutors and students), but tutors usually work with students in our literacy centers, libraries, or other public places.

All 5 members of our volunteer training team are certified educators by profession. We are grateful for all of their time and expertise! Training team members are Susan Randow, Maggie Davis, Michelle Guiluame, Sara Beech, and Barb Averill.

Our team leader, Susan Randow, is a retired educator of 40 years, with a BS in Special Education, and a Masters in Psychology of Reading. Her teaching experience includes elementary school, community college classes, and Master's level university classes. Susan's other specialties include time as a Special Ed. Dept. Chair., a Teacher Specialist, and a Professional Development Trainer for a school district. She has also presented at two national conferences.
