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.
Tutor applicants will participate in a 15-hour workshop that will include online and in class training. At the end of the workshop, tutors become certified Laubach Instructors.
Time and commitment
On average, a tutor will spend 1 hour per week preparing for lessons and 2 hours per week teaching. We ask for a minimum 1 year commitment.
