Are you interested in changing lives? The PCLC is in need of new tutors for adults in our community. Literacy impacts every aspect of our learners’ lives. Tutoring an adult can be a deeply satisfying experience. As a tutor, will be matched with a learner with whom you will meet 2-3 hours/week. Together, you will work toward their literacy goals, including reading, writing, or speaking English and learning basic math skills.
Application and Orientation
