If you would like to help adult learners improve their reading, writing and conversational English skills please join us for our Tutor Training Orientation to learn about becoming a Basic Reading or ESOL Tutor.

Tutors must have a High School diploma, attend an orientation session and complete our 18-hour training. No teaching experience is required, but volunteers should be patient and sensitive to the needs of adult learners.

Tutors meet with students 2 hours per week, and we ask for a one-year commitment.

Update: Students and tutors are now able to meet in person, following LVM guidelines regarding Covid-19.
We have an Orientation session scheduled in September and will hold an ESOL training in the fall (call the office for details: 781-769-4599.)
