To become a Literacy Volunteers tutor, you do not need to have teaching experience. You do not have to be able to speak another language. Our staff will provide you with all the training and support you need. The commitment is usually one session per week lasting 2.0 hours.
The commitment for tutoring is between six months and a year due to the amount of time invested in training resources.
When you become a tutor, we will provide you with training and match you with one or more students. You may teach adult students English conversation skills, reading or math. Or you might help them prepare for the citizenship exam, apply for jobs and meet other specific goals. What you teach depends on your areas of interest, the needs or goals of the individual student and practical applications of the English language.
