Tutoring a student can reap astonishing rewards. Any uncertainty you feel will quickly dissipate when you hear a student’s story or see their excitement when he or she receives a promotion at work because of improved reading and communication skills. There is no charge to the student for one-on-one tutoring services and all books are provided at no charge to the student and the tutor. Likewise, there is no fee to attend a prospective tutor-training workshop.
Two types of LSIRC students exist:
The "literacy" student who was born in the U.S. but has difficulty reading.
The ESOL student – born outside the United States, moved to the U.S. and wants to learn English. The student may or may not be able to read in his/her native language. The majority of these students are able to communicate in English on a limited basis. Some simply want to improve their conversational English skills.
