Become a Tutor
Tutoring is a Rewarding and Life-Enhancing Experience!
Literacy for Life's tutors are the heart of our program. Tutors provide one-to-one and small group instruction in reading, writing, math, ESL (English as a Second Language), and computer skills.
We'll give you all the training you need. New tutors complete our New Tutor Training series. We provide ongoing support through individual consultation, in-service workshops, a resource library, and referral to online training resources.
