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 speak and write English. After an intensive Saturday training workshop, tutors are ready to apply their newly acquired expertise to help their new students.
The 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.
