Literacy Volunteer Tutor
Literacy Volunteer Tutors work one-on-one with adults to support them in learning to read, improve financial or health literacy, gain workplace skills, improve technology skills and/or learn English (ESoL). Tutors are provided training based on research and ProLiteracy standards. Tutors normally spend 1-2 hours per week with their learner and instruction is learner-centered based on the specific needs of the individual. Tutors are provided topic specific training as needed. Literacy Volunteer Tutors also may participate in Family Literacy activities encouraging early reading for children. Tutors can meet learners in-person or virtually, depending on the needs of the learner.
