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 ongoing 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. Sessions can be in-person or online.

To help you decide what kind of tutoring is right for you, have a look at our volunteer tutor job descriptions.

All volunteer tutors will receive a minimum of 10 hours of online training and mentoring.  One-to-one tutors will receive an additional 1-day Laubach Certification workshop.

We appreciate tutors are tutoring from home using their internet and/or phone costs and sadly TLG cannot reimburse those costs.

Commitment and responsibility vary with each volunteer position.
