Our volunteers are at the heart of our work. In Philadelphia, volunteer adult education tutors serve multitudes of adult students every year providing mentorship, support, and academic guidance. They aid staff, especially adult education teachers, who rely on them to help facilitate lesson plans and hone in on students who benefit from more focused support.

The first step to becoming an Adult Education Tutor is to attend one of the FREE tutor trainings offered by the Office of Adult Education. The training is open to everyone – no teaching experience required!  For volunteers who may have teaching experience from K-12 education settings, this training will draw on your existing knowledge and help you prepare to work with adult learners. After completion, trained tutors are placed at adult education programs throughout Philadelphia. Click here to learn more about our volunteer program.

DESCRIPTION

The Tutor Now: GED® / HiSET® Prep Training provides volunteers with the knowledge, tools, skills, and resources to support adult learners who are working at a 9th grade + level.   Volunteers will learn tactics to help prepare students to take standardized tests like the GED® or HiSET® in order to obtain a Commonwealth Secondary School Diploma.

This online training is completed over a three-week period.
Completion of all components is required to receive the Office of Education’s Certificate of Completion.
