Tutor Training Schedule

Our goal is to ensure that you feel prepared and supported as a tutor. We want both you and your student to succeed. There are two parts to tutor training:

  • Part 1, Introductory Tutor Training, will be a three-hour workshop. Advance registration is required. Please register as early as possible. The number of attendees will be limited. This session will focus on your role as a literacy tutor, understanding adult learners and their goals, and the resources and support you will receive as a tutor.
  • Part 2 will be completed via online modules. Details will be provided in the introductory workshop. For Part 2, you will choose to focus on either Adult Basic Education (reading, writing, math) or English Language Learning (ELL/ESL). These sessions will focus on specific teaching techniques to help students meet their individual goals.

“What has been most meaningful to me as a tutor is how exhilarating and fulfilling it is when you see a student learn. When they want to learn about a topic that directly affects their life and finally they have that lightbulb moment of understanding. It’s an incredible thing to witness. It’s such a happy feeling for you and for them. You know that you helped them and that they are making progress. It’s just fantastic!”
