VOLUNTEER TUTORS ARE NEEDED to work with children with Dyslexia


There is nothing more rewarding than working with a child who really needs your help. The Hamilton Learning Centre provides free tutoring to children with Dyslexia.  Imagine – the chance to work one-on-one with a child who is in need of your help. You can be that special person who leads a child through the process of learning to read, taking them from the world of frustration to one of success. This experience will require a significant commitment of your time, but it will be rewarded bountifully by the smiles of a happy child and a thankful family.

To become a Learning Centre tutor individuals will need to be trained in the Orton-Gillingham approach. This training consists of 45 hours of classroom tutorial and observation with feedback conducted over the following 12 months. The training is provided at no cost to the individual.

Tutor training and all supplies provided. Candidates must have a Post Secondary Certificate.
Teaching Experience an asset but not required.
