Tutors Needed

Thank you for your interest in becoming a tutor for an adult learner.

Tutoring can be a very rewarding experience. It can give you the opportunity to make a real difference in a person’s life, and enrich your own. We will provide you with training, resources and on-going support.

Adult Literacy Tutors help adult learners build basic reading, writing, math computer skills and essential work skills through one-to-one or small group instruction. To help you decide if tutoring is right for you, download a copy of the tutor position responsibilities information sheet.
