We welcome any adult with a minimum of a high-school diploma to inquire about tutoring in our programs. We ask that tutors meet with their student once each week, for one to two hours. Before being matched with an adult student, each tutor must complete the tutor training workshop which is provided free by CLC.

Tutor Purpose
  • To help adults improve their reading and writing, learn and improve their English, or pass the HiSET exam.
Tutor Training
  • To become a certified tutor, volunteers must attend a training session.
  • Tutors are encouraged to attend free, in-service training when possible. These meetings are usually held several times a year.
Tutor Responsibilities
  • Encourage your student
  • Meet regularly and punctually
  • Be well-prepared for lessons
  • Fill out monthly reports on your student's progress
Tutor Hours
  • Tutors generally meet with students once a week for 1-2 hours. Lesson preparation can take about an hour at first, but this time will decrease as you become more familiar with your student and the instructional materials.
  • Most tutors meet between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., M-F, but we also have tutors who prefer evenings or Saturdays, which is a plus for working students.
  • Tutors meet at the literacy council office in Collierville or at a public library if that is more convenient for both the tutor and student.
Tutor Rewards
  • The smile on the face of a student when she understands something she never thought possible.
  • A heartfelt hug from a student who read a sign on the way home that he could never read before.
  • The knowledge that you are helping to make the world a better place.
