Become a Volunteer Tutor:
Volunteer literacy tutors are needed to help adult literacy students become more confident by developing and improving their literacy skills, including basic reading, writing, and comprehension.
Volunteer tutors must:
- Be at least 18 years old. No previous teaching/tutoring experience necessary.
- Complete the 2-hour tutor training. These are usually scheduled every few months, on the last Friday of the month, from 10:00 - 12:00 noon. Call 310-288-2207 for information on upcoming tutor trainings.
- Commit to meet with your adult student at least once a week, for a minimum of 6 months.
Volunteer tutors will be matched with an adult student after completion of training. Based on the tutor and student's schedule needs, Literacy staff will help the tutor/student pair set a weekly tutoring schedule. Tutors will be provided with recommended materials and techniques; as well as assistance from Literacy staff.
