Tutors change lives.
Becoming a tutor at The Literacy Center is a rewarding way to give back to your community in a meaningful, lasting way. Each year, more than 120 people tutor over 150 students at The Literacy Center, providing an invaluable amount of hours in support of our students' goals. Tutors often help students with the following subjects:
Reading & Writing
Career readiness and resume development
English pronunciation & conversation
Citizenship exam preparation
High School Equivalency Exam Prep
Trade-specific and industry exam prep
No background or experience is necessary, just a willingness to help and an eagerness to learn. All volunteer tutors receive comprehensive training prior to being matched with a student. Our Volunteer Coordinator will work closely with you to find the best match for your unique skills and ability.

TLC's New virtual tutor training
Tutor from your home or office! You now have the option to tutor in person or online.
In September 2021 we started our new, self-paced Tutor Training. The training consists of 4 recorded sessions with assignments and a quiz, as well as two face-to-face (you will have options to attend these via zoom or in person) meetings with the volunteer coordinator and other new tutors. The face-to-face sessions are meant to allow you to ask questions, learn more about our resources and meet your fellow new tutors.
Please send us your information if you are interested in signing up for the training.
