Warren County ACES seeks tutors

September 13, 2010

The Warren County Adult and Child Education Success has been around for years, but this fall, ACES Director Tabi Cooper is looking for tutors to help with a the local education program.

ACES wants tutors above the age of 18 to volunteer their time at the Warren County Library in Monmouth to assist junior high, high school and even college students who are struggling with school work. Tutors are needed in all subject areas including reading, writing, spelling, math, science and English. Tutors also might need to help adults who are trying to earn GED’s.

Even the busiest of students can help tutor for ACES. ACES has a flexible schedule and is looking for all the help they can get. Tutoring will start in about two weeks, and students can volunteer their time on weekends or weekdays after school. Tutors can also help a student anywhere in town as long as it is a public place, although the Warren County Library or Hewes Library are recommended places.

“ACES is open for all people to use,” stated Cooper.

For a student here at Monmouth, there are two options. The first option is to volunteer to become a tutor. The second option is to sign up to be tutored.

If you want to be a tutor, a training session is mandatory.  According to Cooper, the training session is easy, but it does require a couple hours of one’s time. “Tutors will be notified 12 hours before their training session starts, and the training lasts four hours. During training, students will learn the proper ways to tutor people on different subjects,” said Cooper.

ACES is also busy with other educational programs. Make a Difference Day, a community wide book circulation drive, is being planned, and volunteers are always needed for ACES’ other programs as well. All of ACES’ programs are to help benefit the local students. “ACES is here to help improve education,” Said Cooper. “We really do believe that no child should be left behind.”

If you are interested in signing up to become a tutor or to find out when you can be tutored, contact ACES Director Tabi Cooper at 309-734-2249 on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. She will need to know available hours and subject preferences.

    Actually, tutoring 12 hours basic training that takes place before the tutoring starts and 4 hours of advanced training once the tutoring starts, for a total of 16 hours of training.

    Want to make that correction.
