Join Literacy DuPage in providing one-on-one tutoring to people who want to learn English.
What if you lived right here in DuPage County but couldn’t read, write, speak, or understand English? Where would you work? How would you get around? Who would answer your questions?
Believe it or not, this is a real struggle for thousands of DuPage County residents. At Literacy DuPage alone, we currently have over 200 adult learners waiting to be matched with an English language tutor.
- You can help. Become a volunteer tutor with Literacy DuPage. Your involvement could help someone achieve life changing results.
- No teaching experience or foreign language background is necessary. You will receive 18 hours of tutor training from our staff. Then, once you’re matched with a learner, we’ll provide ongoing support to help you meet that person’s needs.
- Learning happens one-on-one, two hours a week. Literacy DuPage matches your schedule with your learner’s schedule for one-on-one tutoring. You and your learner will meet at a mutually convenient time and place for one, two-hour session each week.
- Tutors help learners gain practical skills. Our learners’ goals range from holding conversations with their children’s teachers, speaking with doctors and shopping for chicken. Literacy DuPage will equip you with the knowledge and resources you need to provide a learning experience tailored to your learner’s specific goals.
