Volunteer opportunity description

Help adult immigrants learn English at Aquinas Literacy Center! By volunteering as an English Literacy Tutor for just 90 minutes per week, you can empower an adult learner to achieve their personal and professional goals. 

Tutoring is scheduled at your convenience during regular Center hours (Monday through Thursday 9am-8pm). All tutoring occurs at our Center, located at 1751 W. 35th St. in Chicago. Prospective tutors must be native or near native English speakers. Knowledge of another language is not required; all tutoring is in English. You will receive 13 hours of training before working with an assigned learner. 

Our next New Tutor Training Workshop will be:

Friday, September 11 from 6pm to 9pm and Saturday, September 12 from 9am to 4pm

Prospective tutors must attend both days, and advance registration is required. A one-time $25 fee helps cover the cost of materials and workshop refreshments. The remaining 3 hours of training are scheduled individually during regular Center hours. At the end of all training, you will receive a 6 month membership and a certificate through ProLiteracy.
