What is Tutor Training?

The Literacy Council of San Luis Obispo County offers two-session workshops designed for certification as a volunteer tutor.  Previous teaching experience is not necessary.  All that is needed is the desire to help others.  You will learn strategies to teach basic speaking, reading and writing skills in Learning Centers located throughout the county.

Call for Tutors

The Literacy Council is now recruiting tutors for all locations in San Luis Obispo. Please see the volunteer page for more info.

The Literacy Council

The Literacy Council for San Luis Obispo County is a nonprofit organization committed to assisting adult learners and their families in the development of English language communication skills.

We recruit and prepare volunteers as tutors, who in turn provide individual and group instruction to learners in reading, writing, speaking and basic number skills. The primary goal is to promote individual awareness and involvement in the literacy process, while furthering the ability of learners to function well in the community.

The success of The Literacy Council's learning centers depends entirely on volunteer effort!

There are Learning Centers throughout the Central Coast, which provide their Learners and Tutors with books, learning materials, and a friendly learning environment.
