About

Tutors are needed in the following classes:
Monday nights, 6-8pm at Literacy Network (701 Dane Street)
Tuesday nights, 6-8pm at Reach Dane (2096 Red Arrow Trail, Fitchburg)

Are you fluent in English? Able to commit to a 2-hour class every week between Jun 5-Aug 26 this summer (with no more than two absences?) Interested in helping a local adult improve their English? No experience or foreign language skills needed! We provide free training, weekly lesson plans, and an instructional intern to support you and your assigned student (who you will work with the entire semester). We just need our volunteer tutors to be reliable, mature, patient, supportive, and willing to make a semester commitment to attending their weekly class.

Literacy Network's Community Literacy is a weekly ESL program for adults, during which volunteers tutor one-on-one in a group setting. Students come from over 70 different countries and attend our free programs to improve their English speaking, reading, and writing skills in order to find better jobs, help their kids with homework, understand food or medicine labels, communicate with doctors or teachers, and perform other important life activities.

Tutor Requirements

**You must attend one scheduled Training session at Literacy Network before the semester begins; we do not offer alternative Training dates or one-on one Training.
**Reliable transportation is required of all tutors. (If you are planning to take a bus to/from your tutoring sessions, please research your route ahead of time to be sure you understand the commute you are committing to.)
**You must attend EVERY WEEK during the semester; no more than two absences is permitted.
