About

For the most rewarding experience of your life, volunteer to teach an adult to read. We tutor Americans who have dropped out or graduated from high school yet are unable to read their own language, and foreign-born who want to become citizens or assimilate better into this culture. Your training as a tutor is only 15-18 hours, and you are asked to tutor at least one day a week (with a team tutor for another day) or spend two days per week with your student(s). Classes run 1 1/2-2 hours. Classrooms and days and time of tutoring are fitted to your schedule as much as possible. A team tests and matches up your students with others of like status, or pre-tests if you choose to tutor only one-on-one. Yearly conferences help with continuing education. Mentors always available after training. Vacations no problem--substitutes are available. Lessons are planned and provided for in the materials. Our students have gone on to higher education, better jobs, better lives, citizenship,and their children benefit vastly from their improved education. You'll feel that you are creating miracles every day. One of our recent students who just learned to read at 63 has taken his first road trip by himself (he can read the street signs), bought his own new furniture, accomplished so many new things that he tells us, like so many others, "You changed my life."
