Help an adult learn to read better!

NOTE: This opportunity is normally in-person but being done remotely/virtually at this time, including the tutor pre-service training. However, many learners are not comfortable with technology and/or may not have easy access to wi-fi or good technology. We are working on this so that more opportunities are available and learners can continue or start to learn during this time.
Please also note: Due to the time it takes to complete training and to find a learner who is a good match, this is not a quick-start opportunity, and we generally ask for a 6-month minimum commitment.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Adult Literacy GED Tutor provides one-to-one tutoring to an adult in need of improving their basic skills in preparation for the GED or HiSET high school equivalency exams. Tutors may choose to tutor in the areas of Reading/Writing (English) and/OR Math, or in any subject area as needed. Note: At the moment, we are in particular need of English tutors.

Tutors meet 1-2 times weekly with the adult learner for 1-2 hours per session to assist with basic skill-building. Tutoring materials and online resources are provided. Tutoring may occur at any of the 28 Sacramento Public Library locations or at other public locations--currently only remote/virtual tutoring is happening.

Training and materials are provided free of charge.
