Tutoring Print E-mail

As a volunteer tutor, you make a deep and lasting difference in the lives of adults with limited literacy skills and their families. Washtenaw Literacy seeks dedicated and enthusiastic adults, 18 years and older, to volunteer as tutors in Basic Literacy (reading and writing) or English as a second language (ESL).

You can volunteer as a tutor in one of the four ways:

  • Basic Literacy tutor
    Help an individual or cluster of learners with reading and writing.
  • ESL tutor
    Help several ESL learners as a group tutor or an individual ESL learner as a personal tutor with speaking, listening, reading, writing, and cultural understanding.

The first step to becoming a volunteer tutor with Washtenaw Literacy is to attend a one-hour informational session, the ABCs of Washtenaw Literacy.  These engaging sessions provide interested folks with all the information they need to decide how they would like to become more involved. Register online or call (734) 879-1320.
