Current Tutor Needs

tutor needsThe fall semester has started! And with the disruptions of our post-Harvey world, one of our biggest needs is for substitutes. 

Take a look at the options below and get in touch to get involved!

To volunteer, or for further information on any of these needs, please contact our Volunteer Manager: 713.266.8777 or tutor@literacyadvance.org.

Below are our current volunteer tutor needs. Click on any heading to be taken to a longer description, or scroll down the page to see more.

 

All Sites: Substitute Tutors

Flexible volunteer tutors needed everywhere!

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 Maxine, our Volunteer Manager.
