Become a Tutor

If you can read and write fluently, you can help an adult to read, write or speak English better. Literacy Volunteers - HBPL has tutor training workshops throughout the year. The 15-hour class teaches Literacy Volunteers of America methods for helping adults improve their skills. After taking the class, you are matched with one adult student. You meet two hours a week, morning, afternoon, evening or weekend. The Huntington Beach Library Adult Literacy Program has a collection of teaching materials, a computer lab and space in the library for tutor pairs to meet. We have two programs, the Adult Literacy Program at Central Library (714) 375-5102 and the Oak View Literacy Program at the Oak View Branch Library (714) 375-5104. We always need tutors!

Becoming a Literacy tutor at either Central or Oak View starts with the successful completion of Tutor Orientation. Learn all about our program, adults who come to us, and much more. There will be three (3) places to submit answers. Once we receive notice you have completed orientation, we will contact you with the next training dates.

If you have questions, please email [email protected], or call the Central office at 714.375.5102, or Oak View at 714.375.5104.

Thanks for your interest in adult literacy. We look forward to having you join us!
