Become a Tutor

We are looking for volunteer tutors for our program.  Are you interested in teaching a student to read or write (BL - Basic Literacy student)?   Are you interested in helping a student learn to speak English (ESOL - English for Speakers of Other Languages)?  We offer a six-week training course (3 hours each session), taught by certified Literacy Volunteers of Massachusetts trainers. The schedule for the training is listed below. At the end of the training, you will be matched with a student and then the fun begins!


I'm interested and would like more information about becoming a tutor!


During this time of COVID-19, our office is closed and there are no in-person meetings or trainings. We are starting virtual tutor training now.
