Don't Worry, We'll Train You!

Peninsula READS trains and supports volunteer tutors to work with our adult learners. Tutors are needed throughout the day to match the schedule of the learners.

You can…

  • Serve as primary tutor for a learner or small group in basic reading and writing, math, or English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL)

  • Enhance a learner’s primary instruction by working with an individual or small group on topics, such as spelling and job-specific literacy tasks

  • Teach special short-term classes to meet learner needs, like job interview skills, how to register to vote, how to use the library, and test-taking skills

  • Start a book discussion group

  • Serve as a tutor’s assistant to increase the amount of individualized help
