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.

“As a tutor, I’ve realized how much the personal and academic are intertwined for students. You can’t give your full attention to a word problem if you are worried about rent money, and you can’t meet the criteria for a new job if you can’t respond to an emailed question without making mistakes in writing. It’s an especially important reminder to me because I went straight through my school, got a teaching job and stayed there for 37 years. How “boring” that is compared to the journeys of many of my students!”
