Dyslexia Tutoring Program
This nonprofit organization trains volunteers to tutor low-income children and adults with dyslexia and other language-based disorders. Volunteers should have a high school degree, good language skills, patience, a willingness to understand persons with language disabilities, and the desire to help someone who wants to learn to read. Volunteer tutors are trained through a twenty-hour course in the Orton-Gillingham method of
teaching reading, spelling, and writing, are subjected to a criminal background check and must commit to 60 hours of tutoring. For more information call

Adult volunteers are needed to provide structured out-of-school educational activities as part of the Extended Educational Enrichment Experience (Quad E) Program designed to involve families and to help improve academic achievement among 5th to 8th graders. Those who would benefit would have low academic performance, and many would come from low income families living in subsidized housing, and attend elementary and middle schools in the Annapolis feeder area. A variety of volunteer positions are available including: Tutors, Mentors, Homework Helpers, Professional Counselors, Life Skills Trainers, Cultural Enrichment Providers, Health Care Professionals, Fundraisers, and more. For further information or to sign up to help contact Yevola Peters, Volunteer Executive Director at 410-353-9182 or 410-224-3820.
