Tutor Resources




Welcome fellow Literacy Volunteer tutors! We have heard your requests for tips, hints and web links to provide additional information for your students and created this resource page as a guide for you.


As tutors, we strive to help our students move forward to achieve their goals. Additional information on how to “get there from here” can be very helpful. One rule of thumb repeated at Tutor Training is to meet with your new student three times before attempting to begin "lessons."
