Do you want to join a dedicated group of people who work to improve literacy in the Santa Fe area? Your knowledge of basic literacy skills, our training, and a commitment to tutor three to four hours each week for a period of nine to twelve
months are all that are required to get started.As a volunteer tutor in the program, you have a choice of two specialties:

Basic Literacy program, tutors are needed to teach adults the fundamentals of reading, writing, or basic math. You may choose to tutor one, two, or all three subjects.

English as a Second Language (ESL) program, English language skills tutors are needed to teach English language skills to students whose primary language is not English. It is not required for you to have proficiency in any language other than English in order to teach these students.

Tutor training is offered through ProLiteracy America and consists of 10 hours of training offered at the times noted below. Your literacy instruction will involve all language components: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. You will learn effective methods for teaching adults to acquire conversational English skills and to use those skills to meet self-identified goals such as job advancement, citizenship, and improved parenting skills.
