Literacy for Life Tutor

Literacy for Life is an independent 501(c)3 organization that serves the greater Williamsburg community by offering adult literacy programs. Literacy for Life operates out of the William & Mary School of Education.

Literacy for Life's tutors and other volunteers are the heart of the program. They provide:

- One-on-one and small group instruction in reading, writing, math, and spoken English
- Help with special events
- Assistance with fundraising
- Administrative support

Tutoring is a rewarding and life-enhancing experience. Previous teaching experience is not required, nor is another language. New tutors complete six hours of training before tutoring, with an additional three-hour session two weeks later. Frequent in-service workshops are offered throughout the year. Tutors can enhance their skills by attending workshops, utilizing on-line training modules, using the resource library and computer-assisted learning lab, and receiving staff support.
