Become a tutor to help someone improve their math, reading, language, or digital literacy skills!

No PhD in math or history in education required! Often, our students are starting at the most basic math skills with addition and subtraction, or fractions and decimals, or the most basic literacy skills with reading and writing, or the English language. We can even help you brush up on topics before you begin teaching your student.

Education is a key to success, but there are very few places for adults to improve their basic skills.

Literacy Volunteers of Wayne County changes lives by providing much-needed opportunities for adults to learn. Our instruction focuses on the specific needs and goals of each Learner. Likewise, times and locations are flexible to meet the schedules and transportation needs of busy adults.

Most tutors work one-on-one with an adult student. This allows sessions to focus on the students own needs and goals. We match students and tutors according to a time and location that is convenient for both of them, as well as your interests and personality!

In order to tutor, you will need to attend some training to give you all the skills you'll need. We provide online tutor training in order to prepare you to become a tutor.
