I am retired and a new tutor for five months with AACLC. I have to admit that I was kind of anxious about having the ability to tutor at first. However, as I was introduced to the initial literacy training program, I met people from all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels, but one of the things that stood out was that all the people (trainers, support staff, training students) cared for people, They sincerely desired and wanted to make a difference in people lives through tutoring. That's when I realized I was in the right place to learn to tutor. They have excellent material that is very thorough and cutting edge for the student and tutor. Plus, they have a practical and professional way of evaluating and screening potential students and assign them accordingly. Their overall support system via the organization and /or website is excellent. I also admire the oversight of the director. She is very hands on which is different than many other organizations I have worked with.
