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.

“Literacy Pittsburgh’s initial tutor training was an excellent crash course in how to become prepared to serve as a tutor. All sorts of exercises and methods were covered effectively and really allowed me to hit the ground running, even with no prior experience. Additionally, my coordinators have been wonderful, providing excellent advice, suggestions, and guidance along the way. You never feel as if you're alone as a tutor with Literacy Pittsburgh.”
