About

Project Read is the adult literacy program of the San Francisco Public Library. Since 1983, trained volunteer tutors have been working one-to-one with English-speaking adults seeking to improve their basic reading and writing skills.

Tutors are required to attend an orientation, complete twelve hours of basic tutor training and make a year-long commitment to tutoring. Our training equips tutors with a variety of teaching ideas, techniques and strategies designed to help adult learners improve their reading and writing skills. After training, we ask that our tutors meet with an adult learner one to two times a week for one year.
