Mission

VCLC’s mission is to enable adults to achieve personal goals and very young children to achieve pre-literacy skills through literacy services provided to families free of charge.

Vision

We envision a Valencia County in which all residents have the literacy skills they need to achieve their own dreams.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TUTORING

WHO CAN TUTOR?
If you are over 18 and can read and speak English, you can tutor after completing either our Basic Reading or English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESL) Tutor Training Workshop. No prior teaching or tutoring experience is necessary. The only degree you need is a degree of caring.

WHERE WILL I BE TUTORING? We require you and your student work in a public building, such as the public libraries in Belen, Los Lunas, Bosque Farms or UNM-Valencia Campus.

DO I HAVE TO SPEAK ANOTHER LANGUAGE TO BE AN ESL TUTOR? No! In fact, most of our tutors do not speak the language of their student. We train you in techniques to teach a student starting from English.

WHAT DOES VCLC EXPECT FROM ME AS A TUTOR? We ask that you commit to working with your student for a minimum of 1 hour per week for 6 months. We also ask that you commit to being a supportive tutor who prepares for lessons, meets regularly, lets the student know if a session must be canceled and returns records of tutoring sessions for our office files and periodic statewide and national reports.

WHAT DO I DO NEXT? Call VCLC at (505) 925-8935 and sign up for the next tutor-training workshop or to volunteer your time! Please call us if you would like a representative of VCLC to speak to your congregation, community group, club, school or office.
