Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts trains volunteers to provide free, individualized and confidential tutoring to adults in the areas of basic literacy and ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).

LVM tutors are collaborative and encouraging volunteers who create an affirming and engaging learning experience. We ask trained volunteers to tutor for 2 hours each week for a minimum of 9 months.

Our student-tutor pairs meet remotely or at a public library, based on their preferences.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is to attend a volunteer information session.

Mission Statement

Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts (LVM) believes in the power of literacy to transform lives and communities. Since 1972, LVM has trained volunteer tutors to provide free, confidential and individualized tutoring to adults in basic reading and writing, and English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).


LVM volunteers help adults acquire the literacy and English language skills that empower them to realize their goals. By improving their basic skills through tutoring, adults are better able to meet life's challenges, be self-sufficient, provide for their families, help their children with homework, read a daily newspaper, enjoy more independence and gain self-confidence.
