Classes take place: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday afternoon, or Friday morning.

Time commitment: 2 - 4 weeks (2-hour lessons)

Flexible start and end dates, beginning after January 14.

Substitute Tutors

Flexible volunteer tutors needed!

Even with the best planning, sometimes tutors have to miss a class. Sometimes we have a bit of notice; other times it's last-minute (like an illness, car trouble, or similar).

Either way, we RELY on our group of flexible, committed volunteer tutors who can step up to substitute for a fellow tutor in need.

Will you put your name on the list?

Here's how it works:

  • A tutor completes a form to let us know that they'll have to miss a class (or, in an emergency situation, calls us the day before or even an hour or two before class is due to begin).
  • Literacy Advance staff contact our trusty list of substitutes to find a match. You won't always be able to cover every class we ask you about - and that's OK! The longer the list, the more chance we have of finding a match.

Can you help? Please start by contacting Courtney, our Volunteer Coordinator.

AND:

If you're already on the subs list, please let us know if you can help with any of the dates below (classes added regularly so please check back for new dates):
