Interested in becoming a tutor?
An estimated 400,000 adults in Orange County do not read or write well enough to meet their needs as workers, family members, and members of the community. OC Read relies on volunteers like you to support these adult learners.
Literacy tutors come from all walks of life. No experience is needed—OC Read will provide all the necessary training.
OC Read tutors are :
- 18 years of age or older
- Willing to try new things and think outside the box
- Able to commit a minimum of two hours a week to tutoring time, plus lesson prep time, on a regular basis
- Must check email regularly and have, or be willing to learn, basic computer skills
- Have completed OC Read's New Tutor Orientation and Training
OC Read's interest list is open. What is the interest list? Our next tutor training opportunity will be in April (4/19, 4/25, and 4/27). Please read the following information carefully for more details.
To help address our current waitlist of learners, our highest areas of need are:
- La Habra
If you are interested in tutoring at any of these locations, please consider joining the interest list by clicking on the button below.
If these locations do not meet your service area but you are still interested in becoming a literacy tutor with OC Read, please check this page again in July for the next training announcement.
New tutor training is typically held in January, April, August, and November. Training consists of three workshops held on Zoom. It is a training requirement for cameras to be on during the entire duration of the training. Due to staffing constraints, there are no make-up days. All three days of training need to be completed in succession in order to qualify as a potential tutor.
