Volunteer Virtual Literacy Tutor

Oakland Literacy Council is looking for compassionate volunteers to serve as virtual English tutors for adults in Oakland County. Volunteers meet students online on a one-on-one basis at a time convenient to both of them.

This is a deeply rewarding volunteer experience where you see the direct impact of your efforts on the life of another adult. Tutors may work with U.S.-born adults or English language learners. All students learn to read the things most of us take for granted, such as a prescription label, an insurance policy and signage. Foreign-born students also learn to understand spoken English and speak the language themselves.

This is also a volunteer experience where you can work safely from home. Because of Covid-19, all tutoring is taking place virtually. Tutors and students use their computers to meet with internet videoconferencing like Zoom or Skype. They study from software curriculum provided by the Council. The volunteer commitment is for two hours a week for 50 hours.

No previous teaching experience is required. Training is provided. For more information, go to www.oaklandliteracy.com/become-a-tutor or email laurie.w@oaklandliteracy.com.
