New Tutor Online Training

Because the progress of adult learners rests upon the skills of the volunteer tutors, effective training is vitally important. Prior to attending our New Tutor Training Seminar, we ask that you complete two online training workshops. These free online workshops, which take about 45 minutes each, will provide an overview of what is expected of a volunteer tutor in a literacy program. While each literacy program is unique, the important points covered are valid across all programs.

The two online workshops are located on the Proliteracy Education Network website.
