Center for Service and Learning sponsors Volunteer Tutor Training Conference Oct. 9-10

Brigham Young University ‘s Center for Service and Learning will sponsor a Volunteer Tutor Training Conference, giving students the opportunity to learn how to tutor more effectively. The Tutor Training Conference will be Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9-10, in 3223 Wilkinson Student Center.

The conference will run Friday from 5 to 10 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. The conference is free to all volunteer tutors, and dinner and breakfast will be provided. To participate, students need to sign up at the Center for Service and Learning at 2330 WSC, (801) 422-1277 or tutoring@byu.edu.

Tutoring Services offers peer-to-peer tutoring for BYU students. Tutors give volunteer their time to help other students who need and look for help. As a volunteer tutor, students personally work with their fellow students, said Stefani Leyva of Tutoring Services.

President Gordon B. Hinckley, former president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, urged BYU students to look beyond themselves. “Take a little time now and again to reach out to help others. You who are extremely able, you who learn with comparative ease, reach down to those who have greater difficulty in mastering academic material that is relatively easy for you. In so doing you will bless your own life as you bless the lives of those you help.”

Students can make a difference by sharing with their peers their talents and abilities. Tutoring Services is a good opportunity to do so and bless the lives of others, said Leyva.

“ A little tutoring can do wonders for someone who does not quite comprehend,” President Hinckley said. “It will do wonders for you as you give of yourself and your knowledge to bless another.”
