Tutor Training Registration Form
The Augustine Literacy Project® of the Triangle trains and supports volunteer tutors who provide free, one-to-one instruction in reading, writing and spelling to low-income children in our area: Durham, Orange, Wake, and Chatham counties. Tutors receive training in a systematic, multi-sensory, phonetic approach to reading and written language, and will prepare and deliver practice lessons with the guidance of an experienced tutor/coach during the training.

An Augustine tutor agrees to meet with her/his student for 45-60 minutes twice weekly. We require new tutors to fulfill their commitment to teach 60 lessons, which may take 18 months.

The cost of the training is $300 for those who agree to tutor a qualified, local Augustine Literacy Project student. This fee helps to offset the cost of materials plus a required background check. If space permits, individuals who will not tutor a local Augustine student may register for $650.

Payment is due at the time of registration and refundable up to two weeks before the first day of training. Click the Donate button on our home page to pay through PayPal, and mention "tutor training." Email elizabeth.perry.alp@gmail.com for information.
