KL&S Volunteer Tutor Training

Are you interested in tutoring adults? Most of the one-to-one tutoring at KL&S is delivered by volunteer tutors.

  • Are you patient, flexible and open-minded?
  • Do you have strong reading and writing skills?
  • Can you commit to volunteering three hours a week for the next eight months, or more?

If you said “yes” to all three questions, please read on!

Required Training

Training is generally offered twice a year, once in the fall (October) and once in the winter (January). If you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, please call in September or December to set-up an interview.

Note: Next training January 2016.

Before registering for training, you will have an interview with our tutor coordinator. Training comprises eight sessions. Four sessions are delivered in group meetings at KL&S; four sessions are delivered to you on-line. Please click here for the training calendar. If working online is new to you, we are happy to arrange a convenient time for you to use a computer at one of our sites.


After successfully completing the training, you will be matched with one of our students. The student will already have met with a staff member and together they will have outlined learning goals and a basic plan of action.

Tutors and students meet once a week for a two-hour session on-site at KL&S.
