TUTOR TRAINING PROGRAM


Cultural Linguistic Services (CLS) is partnering with ProLiteracy, a national, adult-literacy organization, to support our tutors working with UW-Madison employees.  ProLiteracy offers tutor training, resources, and other services to member agencies like CLS and our tutors. 

You can take free, online tutor training through ProLiteracy when you volunteer as a tutor with CLS.  You can choose and take modules at your own pace in the English as a Second Language (ESL) Tutor Training or the Basic Literacy Tutor Training series.  Each time you complete a training module, you receive a certificate of completion.  You can also work toward series certificate.

  3. Choose modules that are most important for you and your learner, and complete them at your own pace.
