Literacy DuPage teaches people like you to help a neighbor read, write, speak and understand English better! If you’re interested, there are training sessions being held at IPPL starting on April 9. When you share your time to help other adults in our community, you can build a mutually rewarding one-on-one relationship with your student. You will see direct rewards from their work and take pride in helping students become more independent and comfortable members of our community. Tutors may be retirees, homemakers, or employed full‑time. Tutors need not be experienced in teaching or be bilingual. Tutors, however, must be over 18 years old, have graduated from high school, and be fluent in English.
Volunteer tutors receive a comprehensive training in a series of six workshops, preparing for both Basic Literacy and English as a Second Language instruction. After training, tutors meet with their learners for two hours a week, at a convenient time and location for both. Tutoring is in a comfortable setting of one‑on-one or small group. There is a $25 fee that covers a portion of the cost of the materials you receive during training.
Many older parishioners of Our Lady of Peace Parish (formerly St. Mary’s) as well as other longtime residents remember the Marian Hills Seminary and its 220 acre farm. The Seminary’s property extended approximately north to 67th Street, south to 59th Street, east to Clarendon Hills Road, and west to Route 83. View photos of the Marian Hills Seminary set at www.flickr.com/photos/ipplinfo, and learn more about its history at http://ippl.info/localhistory.
