LNY Shares Expertise at Literacy Conference

Thu, May 2nd 2019 09:10 am

Literacy New Jersey serves the entire state of New Jersey, providing free instruction to adults who need help with reading, writing, math and speaking English. Trained volunteer tutors work with adults one-to-one or in small groups to help them improve their language and literacy skills so they can reach their life goals.

Burdened by ongoing tutor training, Literacy New Jersey reached out to Literacy New York to learn about the Intake to Outcomes (I2O) Online Tutor Training Program.

Kathy reported how much research was conducted via survey and focus groups.200 plus tutors who had used I2O were surveyed. With I2O,

73% of tutors feel materials better prepared them to tutor
75% would recommend to others
Other comments that were offered by the tutors and Program Managers:
Flexibility of training rated as highest attribute
Tutors 34 and under “much less likely” to train if not offered online
"There are more Millenials coming in!” according to many Program Managers who also said:"Since using the online training, there has been better retention and more tutors"

The particpants of the Literacy New Jersey Literacy for Life Conference were very excited about I2O and are hoping to begin using it soon.
