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).

In-person tutor trainings are cancelled due to COVID-19. We plan to launch virtual training soon so that we can quickly match waiting students when we can resume normal operations. To learn more about training options and to receive a volunteer application, call 412-393-7645 or click here.

There are no upcoming tutor training events scheduled at this time.

“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!”
