Tutor Qualifications and Training
- High school diploma or a GED
- 18 years or older
- Desire to share the gift of literacy
- Be non-judgmental, flexible, and patient
We recommend three hours per week (usually two 1½ hour sessions) to meet with a learner.
Prior to being matched with a learner, volunteers attend a 1/2 day training led by an experienced trainer. The training is comfortably paced, interactive and fun. Breakfast foods are provided.
Trainees learn and explore:
- Organization's mission
- Adult Learning
- Tutor expectations
- General Learner profiles
- Potential Tutoring opportunities
You must complete the volunteer tutor form before attending the new tutor training.
