What is it?
Tutor Essentials is a 12-hour pre-service training for new adult literacy volunteers. We offer trainings in ABE and ESL. In this training, we'll teach you everything you need to know to feel prepared for your first meeting with your learner. No teaching or tutoring experience necessary!
How does it work?
Tutor Essentials is broken up into Part I and Part II. When you register for Tutor Essentials you will receive access to both parts. The online course for each part is designed to take about 4 hours each to complete. After you complete the online course for each part, you must sign up to join a live training session to discuss the work you completed. Each live training session is 2 hours. In total, the whole training will take approximately 12 hours. Once you complete both parts, you will be ready to start tutoring. If you are already matched with an adult literacy program, you can contact your volunteer coordinator for next steps. If you haven't been matched yet, reach out to Keighty at keighty@litworks.org for help.
