Wilcrest - Substitute Tutors

Ongoing need

We're trying to increase our numbers of available subs! If you think you could help, even occasionally, please get in touch.

wilcrest esl We regularly need substitute tutors. Sometimes tutors need to miss a class; sometimes last minute, in an emergency; other times we know weeks in advance and can plan.

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 or date we need doesn't suit you, just tell us, and we'll call the next person.
wilcrest abe
Contact Amanda, the Wilcrest Program Manager, if you're a trained Literacy Advance tutor and are willing to be on the substitute list.

If you like the sound of this opportunity but have not yet been trained at Literacy Advance, please start by contacting Maxine, our Volunteer Manager.
