How to Become a Volunteer Tutor

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe! We hope you will be able to join the dedicated group of people who work to improve literacy in the Santa Fe area. We have many students waiting for tutors at this time. Your knowledge of basic literacy skills, our training, and a commitment to tutor two to three hours each week for a period of nine to twelve months are all that are required to get started.

As a volunteer tutor in our program, you have a choice of two specialties: the Basic Literacy (BL) program and the English as a Second Language (ESL) program. All tutors are carefully interviewed, trained, and matched with students. They also receive ongoing support from LVSF staff and opportunities to improve their tutoring skills through workshops and in-service trainings.

In our Basic Literacy (BL) program, tutors are needed to teach adult students the fundamentals of reading and writing, and some students also need tutoring in numeracy and basic math. See our Basic Literacy Tutor Job Description.
In our English as a Second Language (ESL) program, tutors are needed to teach English language skills to adult students whose primary language is not English. It is not required for you to have proficiency in any language other than English in order to teach these students. See our ESL Tutor Job Description.
