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.

“As a tutor, I’ve realized how much the personal and academic are intertwined for students. You can’t give your full attention to a word problem if you are worried about rent money, and you can’t meet the criteria for a new job if you can’t respond to an emailed question without making mistakes in writing. It’s an especially important reminder to me because I went straight through my school, got a teaching job and stayed there for 37 years. How “boring” that is compared to the journeys of many of my students!”
