Due to Covid-19 virus closures, we are not conducting tutor training sessions. Please check back with us when LPS and other local schools are reopened. Thank you.

Who makes a good tutor? If you can speak, read, and write well in English, and want to share those skills, you can become an effective tutor. You don’t need an education degree, prior experience, or knowledge of another language – just a desire to help and a willingness to be trained.

To become a tutor, you must attend a one-hour orientation and one or two-hour sessions of training, depending on which program you choose. Workshops are usually limited to 16 participants.


If you commit to one year of service, you do not have to pay for the training. Donations are welcome to help defray the cost of training and support our programs. If you want to attend our training for purposes other than tutoring a Lincoln Literacy student (or if your agency is sponsoring), the standard fee for the course is $160.

Typically, you volunteer once a week for an hour or two (although some tutors do more). Call Victoria Welles at 402.476.7323 for more information.
