Those interested in becoming a tutor still are welcome at a session scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Elkins/Randolph YMCA in Elkins. There is no charge for the workshop and materials will be provided. Teaching experience is not required.
Lunch will be provided, and participants will be asked to take part in a second sessions to be announced later.
