Gateway to hold tutor training sessions


Gateway Community Action Partnership’s Literacy Services Department will conduct two online Literacy Volunteers tutor training sessions beginning in October.  Pre-registration is required. Trained tutors will work one-on-one with adult learners who need help reading, writing, or speaking English.


The training courses will be held online Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. beginning October 11 and Wednesday mornings from 10:00 12:00 p.m. beginning November 16. Each course is held once a week for five weeks.

The training is free and open to the public. Tutors will be trained in ESL and basic literacy. Tutors must be 18 or older with a high school diploma or the equivalent and must be willing to tutor in Cumberland or Salem counties or online.

Gateway has provided literacy services in Cumberland and Salem counties for the past 26 years and is accredited by Literacy New Jersey and ProLiteracy. Trained tutors generally meet with learners one to two hours per week either in person or online.     

For additional information, or to sign up for either training or future training sessions, call Laura Pistoia at 856-497-6645.
