About

Literacy Network’s Skills in Computers & Literacy for Employment (SCALE) program focused on teaching adults basic computer and literacy skills (vocabulary, spelling, using email, filling out online forms, or basic Word/Excel formatting). Tutors work in weekly 2-hour classes with their assigned student, and this commitment is for one semester. Training and lesson plans are provided, and an instructor is available every class to offer you and your student support as needed! Volunteer Tutors are required to:

  • Be 18+ years old, since all Literacy Network students are adults
  • Complete Orientation & Training before tutoring begins
  • Be reliable, patient, and kind
  • Speak, read, and write English fluently (all ESL tutoring is done in English.)
  • Have daily access to email, as we communicate with tutors via email
  • Reliably get to their tutoring site *on time* every week, and stay for the entire session
  • Attend their assigned 2-hr tutoring session everyweek for an entire semester, with no more than two absences (excluding holidays)
