Sometimes tutors need to miss a class.  Sometimes this is last-minute, in an emergency; other times we know weeks in advance and can plan.

Several of our regular Outreach classes need short-term or one-time substitutes in the coming weeks. 

Substitute tutors can say NO at any time! Being a substitute just means you're on a list to be called if necessary. When we call, if the time, date, or location we need doesn't suit you, just tell us, and we'll call the next person.

Wilcrest - Supplemental Classes

Morning, afternoon, & evening tutors needed

Needed: Throughout 2016

We have a robust schedule of supplemental classes at Literacy Advance, designed to add extra detail or focus on different skill areas than regular classes. Supplemental classes are of shorter duration - between 1 and 8 lessons is usual - so can be a great option for a volunteer who can't commit to a 48-hour class session. Topics include resume-writing, conversation for English learners, computer literacy, and more.

Tutors needed right now for: Resume Classes, and Basic Computer Classes

supplemental classes Classes take place: Monday - Saturday (various start times available)
Time commitment: Very flexible! Tell us your availability and we'll start from there.

If you’re a trained Literacy Advance tutor and you think you can help with a supplemental class, please contact Diana, the Transition Coach.

If you want to help but have not yet been trained at Literacy Advance, please start by contacting Maxine, our Volunteer Manager.
