Hillsborough Literacy Council trains volunteers to help adults learn to read or to speak English. Visit HillsboroughLiteracy.org for details on our two programs: Adult Basic Literacy - tutor an adult one-on-one in basic reading and writing up to a 5 th grade level English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) - teach adults learning to speak English (tutors must be fluent in English, no other language needed). Volunteers attend a one-day training session before being matched with an adult on our waiting list, and meet at a Hillsborough County Public Library for one hour once a week. Register for our next New Tutor Training on our Become a Tutor page. We request a $20 registration fee (includes membership & materials).
