What is a volunteer tutor?

An adult literacy tutor supports adults to develop their reading, writing, spelling or numeracy skills to enable them to achieve personal and/or work related goals.

It is not necessary to be a teacher to be a volunteer (although teachers do volunteer), or to have a degree. It is not necessary to have any experience in this area as full training is provided by the literacy service.

If you can read, write and spell (at a good level), are a good communicator and confident in your ability to empathise with and understand adults with literacy difficulties, then you can help. Through training you can support adults who want to improve their literacy.
