Tutor Training

At Literacy Pittsburgh, our goal is to ensure that you feel supported as a tutor. We want both you and your student to succeed.

All tutors attend a 6-hour Teaching Adults Workshop, followed by a 3-hour training in tutoring English as a Second Language or Adult Basic Education students. For your convenience, we offer both weekday and weekend workshops. 

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

“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!”
