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 live virtual workshop via Zoom. 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, 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.

Volunteer Spotlight: Bobby
"I've been looking to volunteer with Literacy Pittsburgh since moving back to the area in 2012. I wanted to do something that could make a difference for another person. I'm not sappy, but it's funny how it ended up making just as much of a difference in my life, too."
