Changing lives beyond words.
Tutors at Literacy Action are as varied in background, experience and skills as the students they teach. Many tutors haven’t had formal training in education, and most have never before attempted to teach someone to read or to learn to speak and write English. After an intensive, Saturday training workshop, tutors are ready to apply their newly-acquired expertise to their new students.
The 150+ tutors at Literacy Action range from active professionals, to retired teachers, to volunteers looking for a meaningful way to contribute to the community. The common bond shared by all of our tutors is their desire to enrich the lives of others through the mastery of language and the written word.
