Dear Prospective Tutor:
Thank you for your interest in becoming a tutor with the Dyslexia Tutoring Program! Our program provides FREE screening and remedial tutoring for low-income adults and children throughout Maryland with dyslexia and other language based learning disabilities.

Our tutor training course is offered FREE of charge to those who commit to 60 hours of tutoring. The tutor and the student decide upon the actual tutoring schedule. It is best when tutors meet with their students at least once a week for 1 to 1 ½ hour sessions. Tutoring can take place at our office or at other public facilities. We are pleased to offer the following class (es)*:

Training courses typically consist of 9 consecutive 2 ½ hour classes. The Dyslexia Tutoring Program will supply the tutoring and training materials for all tutors.

After receiving your completed application, all volunteers must come to our office for a brief interview with the Education Coordinator prior to the first scheduled day of training. Potential tutors will also need to provide a list of references and will be subject to a criminal background check.
