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.

Volunteer Spotlight: Karen
“My experience as a tutor opened my eyes to how hard people will work to achieve goals. My students are fathers, and they work to make their families lives better by bringing them here, by working seven days a week, and by attending tutoring sessions after working all day so they could deal with teachers, doctors, landlords, and grocery store clerks.  Seeing their efforts, talking about their challenges, I see that immigrants are so good for this country.”
