Tutors enhance our classroom instruction by working with students who may need additional help until they can understand all that is going on in class. Our tutors play a significant role in building student self-esteem and in helping students build the most basic foundations necessary to succeed as new readers.
Join our team of volunteers by calling 405-524-7323 for the date for our next CLC tutor training. You must attend tutor training before volunteering in a classroom.
