Become a Tutor
Our initial New Tutor Orientation and Training is a required day of face-to-face sessions. Those with no previous training learn fundamentals of tutoring, while those with prior teaching experience learn to work within our program.
If you are interested in becoming a tutor, read the Registration Form for details, complete it and email, fax or mail it to the Ashley street address no later than ten days before training. A list of upcoming training dates can be found on the calendar of events. You will check out books from the Hillsborough County Public Library System at training, so having your HCPLC library card updated and ready to use is a requirement for acceptance.
There is a one-time registration fee for Tutor Training. The $20.00 fee offsets part of our cost for training and the workshops that follow, counts as a year of membership in the Hillsborough Literacy Council, and includes an initial six month membership in ProLiteracy.
After training, new HLC tutors will be eligible for an online training course provided by Florida Literacy Coalition. Tutors will be able to complete instructional lessons at their own pace while interacting with other tutors and a facilitator.
Please note that registration forms for any training session must be received no later than ten calendar days before the training. Registration forms submitted after the deadline will be processed for the next available training date.
