For 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 get a rewarding experience knowing that you’ve helped someone achieve their goals and be more integrated within our community.

2014 Training Dates (subject to change):

  • May 17, 2014
  • July 19, 2014
  • September 13, 2014
