Why Tutor?

Tutoring is our #1 job opening at Literacy Volunteers. If you enjoy teaching, mentoring, or coaching adults in a one on one environment, then consider this opportunity. 

Many people think that tutoring requires teaching experience or the ability to speak another language. It requires neither. All you need is the desire to help someone.

For about an hour a week, you’ll help students work toward their goals, such as a high school diploma, a driver’s license, a better job, voting for the first time, reading to children, and even becoming a U.S. citizen.

And here’s the bonus: tutors say the rewards are far greater than the effort.
