We are actively 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.  At the end of the training, you will be matched with a student and then the fun begins!

  • We offer ESOL tutor training classes throughout the year, at both Framingham Public Library and Morse Institute Library (Natick).
  • We also offer a BL tutor training class each year, typically in the fall.

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