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.

All tutors attend nine total hours of free training. For your convenience, we offer both weekday and weekend workshops. You will first attend a 3-hour Introductory Workshop, followed by a 6-hour Tutor's Toolkit training for either English as a Second Language or Adult Basic Education (reading, writing, math).

Below is a list of upcoming training workshops. To learn more about training and to receive a volunteer application, click here.

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."
