Our Tutors

Our volunteer tutors are the heart of our program. Becoming a tutor will enable you to make a profound difference in a person’s life.

We train you to tutor an adult student in reading, writing, and English acquisition skills. Most of our tutor/student pairs meet for two hours a week at a mutually convenient time and place.

We ask for a year-long commitment. As a tutor, you will receive a rewarding experience knowing that you’ve helped someone achieve their goals and be more integrated within our community.

Upcoming Training Dates:
