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 late summer 2015.

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.
