Rite to Learn Center (RLC) – Sherwood Park & Area
Posted on April 3rd, 2017
Is your child diagnosed with a Learning Disability in reading and/or writing (dyslexia/dysgraphia)?
The Rite to Learn Center is a complete volunteer based Center which offers free one-on-one tutoring for students in grades 3-6 with reading and or spelling difficulties. It is open to Sherwood Park and surrounding areas. Using the Orton-Gillingham method of instruction, Tutors will provide free one on one tutoring to the child, after school hours twice per week, for about 1 hour, during the school year. It will take about two to three years, depending on the individual child.
We are on the lookout for anyone who is interested in helping a child learn to read in a systematic and explicit manner. There are two ways to help.
1) Monitor: minimal time commitment where you greet parents and students, checking in on the sessions every so often to verify all is going well. This entails a two hour shift and could be once or twice a week, or even once or twice a month, or whatever time you have to spare. Great for university students (study while you gain volunteer hours) who can add this time to their resumes, or for anyone who would like to help on a smaller scale.
2) Tutor: You will work with the students directly. This is a larger commitment of one hour twice a week for about 2-3 years. All training is free in return you provide free tutoring the children enrolled at the Center. Once you are certified as a tutor you may also take on your own clients.
This is a good opportunity for those who are looking to make a difference in a young person`s educational success.
