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), computer skills, workforce preparation, and more.

 

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.

Yes, you can! Teaching experience and a second language are not required.
