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, English language, computer skills, workforce preparation, financial literacy, and more.
We give you all the training you need. New tutors first attend Literacy for Life Orientation, then apply and proceed through New Tutor Training.
We provide ongoing support through individual consultation, in-service workshops, a resource library, and referral to online training resources.
