Teach a Child to Read

GROUP TRAINING SESSION FOR VOLUNTEERS THAT WOULD LIKE TO WORK ONE-TO-ONE WITH A CHILD OR ADULT WITH DYSLEXIA* Saturday May 18th from 9:00am to 12:00

Sinkinson Dyslexia Foundation’s mission is to provide assistance to children struggling with dyslexia and other serious reading problems. We serve children and adults across Hampton Roads by providing one-to-one reading tutoring.  Become one of our volunteer reading tutors by joining us for a 3 hour introductory training session.

*PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TRAINING IS ONLY PART OF THE VOLUNTEER COMMITMENT.  THE ACTUAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY IS TO TUTOR A STUDENT, ONE HOUR A WEEK, FOR 60-100 HOURS.  Volunteers need to submit an application and be approved by Sinkinson prior to attending the training* Contact us with questions at 757-437-0733.  A background check will be required prior to working with a student.

Our volunteers do not need any prior training in reading or teaching. This training session will provide you with an introduction of our structured reading program. With some additional training once your matched with your student, you will be able to use a systematic approach to teaching reading.  Volunteer tutors have helped students gain several grade levels in reading!  We ask our volunteers to commit to working with their student for one hour, once a week, for a total of 60-100 hours. 

This is a great opportunity to gain teaching experience, learn more about the learning differences, and most importantly make a difference in a child’s life! You only need to dedicate one hour a week for each student.
