Adult Literacy Tutoring


Tutor an adult to read and write once a week. Many of our learners wish to improve their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Volunteers receive free required literacy training and support. All materials are provided. You must be 18 or older and commit to one year.

Tutors have four main responsibilities: 1. Meet your learner at least once a week for 1-1/2 hours. 2. Prepare materials for your learner. 3. Be creative and patient in assisting your learner to improve. 4. Track progress and make brief, monthly reports.

If you choose this option, please add your telephone number so our Literacy Coordinator may call you.
