    Do you love tutoring?

    Would you like to share that joy with your family and friends?

    Well, now you can!

    The Tutor Recruitment Drive continues! We need tutors. Our waiting list has dropped, but we have nearly 100 students waiting for ESOL tutors and almost 20 waiting for basic education tutors. We still need tutors badly!

     What better way to recruit tutors than to ask those we already have? Invite your family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and anyone else you can think of to join our tutoring family.

    During the second quarter of the year, you will receive one point for each recruit you bring in who registers for and completes the new tutor training in April, and is then matched with a student. The three tutors with the most points at the end of the quarter will each win a $50 gift card. If there is a tie, winners will be determined by random draw.

    On the registration form, have your recruits enter your name on the “How did you learn about the program?” line – it’s that easy!

    Students may write on any topic, and may remain anonymous if they wish. The submissions can be of any length and will be published without editing to celebrate each student’s stage of learning.

    Please encourage your student(s) to participate and help them submit their work. Your may submit your students’ stories to the Hillsborough Literacy Council one of three ways:
